3 O'clock!! I can't believe you are making me drive 5 hours so we can start boating at 3! I am going to have to go to the Golden Play Park for an am session -or- maybe I will hit Dowde Shute on the way over. lol What do you guys think the flows will be doing on the Front Range since the weather is colder?

No arguement that boulder creek is a fun run and that with water its a classic front range after work run.

I too enjoy a nice round of low water rock n' boat. If you are passing through, its definitely a good time, and worth checking out.

I guess my comment was really that boulder creek at low 200's vs. clear creek in the 800's is a dissappointment. I had the same arguement with my crew after they drug me out to boulder creek when clear creek was running high this weekend. 3ft wave trains vs small splashy waves. 3-5 foot rock boofs vs. rock banging. Of course I was vetoed on clear creek so it appears I am in the minority in my crew and on the buzz.

I'd also say that at relative levels a medium boulder creek run is more fun that a lower clear creek run, so I agree with the boot. A high medium lower clear creek beats out a low water boulder creek in my book though.

As soon as boulder creek has some kicking flows I'll be back!
