Glenwood Springs class IIIs
Hey again. Time for another inane Helio question.
I'm thinking of going to the CWWA Colorado Weekend (planned to actually) this weekend out at Glenwood Springs. Before I go, I'm interested in knowing what the Class IIIs are like out there at whatever flows are typical this time of year.
I've moved up to my first regular Class III run - Parkdale down on the Arkansas. I do pretty well, but I still swim in Spikebuck on occasion because it's so shallow that I freak (not sure I can roll, but I don't). And as a paddler, my bracing instinct is undeveloped.
I really don't want to do class 2s this weekend. I've heard of Shoshone out near there as a good Class III for me. But is the water level this time of year forgiving? Intro Class III is right where my ability is - my roll is super solid mechanically, but my experience rolling in odd places (shallow, big waves) is what causes me to swim at times.
Are the water conditions going to be conducive to me having a good time? What's the Colorado like compared to the Ark (my only river experience, basically).
