I'm tentatively planning a Slickrock -Bedrock tandem canoe trip with my 12 year old son this Friday -Sunday to take advantage of these unexpected (by most, thanks for the heads up by the few!!!) early natural flows and have a few questions for anybody familar with that nieghborhood.
1. Will these flows keep up or lesson through the end of this week? The slickrock gauge is at 1470 right now I know all you rafters and kayakers would be excited at that level and higher but in my open boat(dagger caption) with gear and kid I might be more comfortable at 550 to 850cfs.
2.Is old hwy 90 over the umcompadre plateau open this time of year between Montrose and Naturita? I think that might be my fastest route from Leadville.
3.Are any of the shuttle services given on the BLM Dolores website up and running?BLM Colorado | Field Offices San Juan Public Lands Center | Dolores River Information
as always thanks for any info team MtBuzz
