15 of us did WW this weekend and it was mighty chilly. Camped at Little D. With all the rain I kept checking to see if Little D was getting higher so I could walk up it and goof off in my playboat. All those little slides would be cool if you had a little flow in there. Yeah, I know, I'm dreaming, but you have to admit you've thought about it too if you've hiked up there. I was really impressed with how the canyon looks in a torrential downpour. All those water-cupped walls in the inner-canyon turn into 1,000 waterfalls, some of them fairly substantial. Cool experience to float in the desert during a thunderstorm. I've never worn so many clothes in my boat in my life, but the surfing was as good as ever. And there's never a bad time when you start off the day with 5 Lbs. of bacon. . .
Anyway, just thought I'd share that. BTW, for the amount of use that run sees it's pristine. I'm pretty impressed with the permit system and I've never had a problem getting any date I want with a little prior planning. Compare that to the Salt, any of the 4 Rivers in ID, etc. and I'm impressed with what the WW BLM'ers do, even more with what they don't do. The ranger this weekend was Kyler (sp?) and I thought he was pretty understanding and fair. Did his job, offered advice, pointed out my dogs' shit so I'd clean it up, all stuff that he should be doing.
