South boulder creek-lower

How is this right now, are people boating it yet? I'm coming down to Boulder tomorrow, would it be worth it to bring the boat? Anyone got tomorrow off and wanna show me down it?

I ran it on Sat. with Janir and Jay. It was bony (two hundred something) but I enjoyed it. Below the bottom dam we lost half the water and it was barely floatable but better than walking out. The dam spillway was runnable and it was a lot of fun.

There is a chainsaw sized tree all the way across about 200 yards downstream of the putin. I took a half dozen limbs off the left side but it is not passable yet. It needs some more limbing for that. Further down there was a pair of trees all the way across but we squeezed between them....with more water you could probably go over the old log on the left...the fresh one is on the right.

There is no bad wood placement except for the hard stuff in the park around Harmon Falls. I don't run that stuff, but I peeked and saw 3 or 4 logs in bad spots, including a stubby one vertically pinned in a drop that might be covered with water once it starts running.
