May boating questions....
I'm temporarily in Carefree, Arizona and have the Month of May to boat anywhere in Colorado. Is this too early for the melt? And if not, where should I focus my efforts. I'm a competent Class V boater but will be with some new boaters, so I'd like to be able to balance some fun II/III stuff with some IV/V stuff. I'd like to get on some good creeks, but obviously can't with the people I'm with. I'm not sure what it's like in Colorado, but I know that on the popular Class IV/V stuff in WV and NC (say Upper Yough, Big Sandy, Wautauga) people will let you join their group if it seems like you know what you're doing. Thanks for any and all help.
