So is there any problems getting a 13" oar rig down at that flow? I dont have a dry suit so I am thinking about bringing the raft instead!

Dude...it is me, long time no chat. Pen says hello. Good news and bad news for ya....good news is that IT'S ME, ok I hope that's good news. Bad news...Pen and I will be out of town visiting parents over New Years, we just confirmed last night. This is of course good news for us but bad news cause we don't get to boat together on 1/1/11. But I got a new boat a few weeks ago, a Med Fluid Solo, and I still have to take it on its first run...any ideas for after New Years weekend?

Have a great Christmas and New Years and lets stay in touch, we still want to meet your family.

Sounds good Peter, I've been chatting with a crew and we hadn't established a time, so I'll go ahead and say high noon at the TO.

Should we start taking about carpool schtuff?

I'm in Boulder and although I am not opposed to driving, my 4 door toyota camry sedan might not like it - but I'll be happy to load her up if need be....we'll just need to leave EARLY-er.

If you happen to have a Monarch season pass you know you get three free days at Sunlight. Not the most exciting place by far, but were staying over on Saturday night to ski it on Sunday. Probably also pay a short visit to Penny Hot Spriings.

I like free.

I'll see you all at noon for a lap or two! If the forecast is right (high of 19) it'll be fun to see how much ice collects on boats, pfds, etc. I know I collected a fair amount today at ~40F on Numbers.

Likely will ski sunday either at Sunlight or Copper on the way home.

Jim, are you heading up there? If so, when, and could we carpool?

Eric, Michelle- interested in sharing a paddle boat?

I drove through the canyon at 9:00 this morning and I had never seen the river so low. The USGS stations don't show anything dramatic but I wondered if something was up at the dam or if ice was a problem. I wanted to pull off to take pictures but the off ramps were unplowed and looked sketchy. From the highway, China Wall was a boulder field that looked like you could walk across but would not be navigable. At two this afternoon, while coming back through the canyon, I got off at Grizzly and went back up to Shoshone. Everything looked passable and like it has looked every other day. Any ideas? If it was ice, it hasn't been terribly cold but is forecasted to be for the next few days. Anyhow, I attached a photo of the top of China Wall from this afternoon.
