Just got home and settled in from our 2 dayer on Westwater. We were at the takout by about 12:30 and the you know what didn't pick up until the last 1/2 mile or so.

We had a spectacular time. Only one person fell out even. Last Chance hole is HUGE at this level.

I would have canceled for this past Friday and Saturday. That was one of the craziest wind storms I have ever experienced. We pulled off Deso Friday and chose to petroglyph hunt on Saturday instead of boating.

I can always make the best of it if I have already launched but there are times its just not worth my effort. 35-45 mph steady winds with gusts to 65 seems like my cutoff.

We were the only ones that camped at the put in on Sunday. We saw 2 other boats float past our camp on Monday afternoon. Ranger said the wind was horrific and he thought that probably scared people away. It was a bit breezy on Monday, but Tuesday was nice... even the wind that blew right at the end wasn't enough to cause us any grief.
