ZION is running !!!

unfortunately due to their (park leadership aka NOT BOATERS) bullshit rule of 600 cfs flow restrictions we cannot go. I would like to see them rope off The Moonlight Buttress because it is too hard of a climb. BULLSH!

AMERICAN WHITEWATER has taken this issue up and they have an online survey.
follow the links!

American Whitewater - Help Evaluate Flows in the Virgin River and Zion National Park - UT

ALSO, write the park again, cordially and tell them your thoughts on effectively shutting down this run.

"Jock Whitworth" <> Jock is the park superintendent
"Ray O'Neil" <Ray_O'> Ray is the Backcountry Ranger in charge
"ZION park information" <> park general address
"Ron Terry" <> Ron is the park spokesperson

just copy and paste addresses above. Please keep it cordial, and one only need to let them know you would have liked to be in the narrows today since it is actually running a boatable flow at 601 cfs (4/3/11), but you can sure elaborate as much as you like.

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

FYI, they expect all roads to remain in accessable until at least the end of April. Still 3 foot of snow hanging out.
