Escalante Visual 4/24-25

fri: medium flow, fin kicking a rooster tail and just covered. Higher in the morning, little lower in the afternoon.

sat: About the same as sat, nice medium flow in the am, slight drop in the PM to levels similar to sat.

Cold front was moving in sat afternoon as we left, major wind and some precip.

No wood issues. Several takers on the falls. Sketchy with a high chance of rock.

My guess is it is flowing at a low or med/low flow sunday, low mon and into next week.

Good times seeing old friends and meeting some new ones.

Mariah, you left you cooking pot at the camp site, and I picked it up. Gimme a shout so I can get it back to you.

It's also time to re-calibrate that thing.

Low = Esca falls is scary/maybe goes
Medium = Fair number of people are firing the falls
High = People are scared to drop the lower gorge for fear of the Wall

Sounds like this weekend was low into low-low today/monday, but then we were just doing laps on Eldo (which removed the skin from my knuckles).
