thanks for the info
Browns is easy and boney at this flow. The lead in from Ruby Mountain to Canyon Doors is kinda a pain in the ass, but once your in the canyon it's pretty well channelized. There is 1 tight spot at the bottom of Pinball, and a tight move at the bottom of Widowmaker and in Raft Ripper. There is no ice, just big beaches and lots of rocks. Boated it last weekend with a group of 9 kayakers. Saw 3-4 stand-up paddlers heading down it on Tuesday...
Running lower Browns with Jerry from Salida today. Getting an early start. 10:30 @ Stone Bridge if anyone wants to join.
