I would like to believe that the season's peak hasn't past, but the Ark looks to be spent. The flow though the Royal Gorge hit 2690 & 2630 two days in a row (28 & 29 May) and today (7 June) it fell to as low as 1310 cfs. Now we are all aware that weather can manipute the flow but the flow has fallen to less than 1/2 of what it was a week ago....1380 cfs gone from the river in one week on a steady downclimb --- regardless of the warm weather we've had the past 4 or 5 days.
I'm guessing that the reservoir lords are trying to refill their tanks with all that above average snowpack just in case 2002 repeats it's self in 2006 or 7 or 8.....
I'm still hoping for a 2nd peak, but I can't see it being higher than the one we already had, IMHO.
Then again, the Gorge could be at 4500 cfs on June 18th. What do I know?
