Very good eye. That's a photo Dave Frank took at Skull last October on Sunday just after the big flash flood peak up to 13K. The flow had dropped to about 8K but we'd have all sworn it was higher. I'm convinced that the high density of the water, due to the suspended sediment load, made it feel like it was a higher flow. A couple of veteren boaters on the trip, intimate with WW at all levels, thought it was around 10K after we'd run through Little D.

See you in March,

That would have been the same water I was on in Cat later that week. And you're right, it did seem to have a very high sediment load for the volume. And here I thought it was just old age that made the waves and holes hit harder.....
