Vallecito is perfectly runnable at 1.7 to 1.8. Maybe not ideal and all filled in like at 1.9, (Fuzzy Bunny is jammed up and may require a portage to avoid a dislocated right shoulder), but the rest of the canyon is pretty good to go, although granted a little bony in spots. However, if you're here for a week and it's between hitting it or playing on the Animas another day, Why not?
It does look like it's dropping off, so this week might be out anyway. But worth keeping an eye on, especially since they only have a week and you're going to be in the area anyway. Lime & Mineral certainly out- too high up. The Piedra is a good time- take the playboat. The Embudo isn't too far away from D-Go, nor is Escalante......
