San Juan - Mesa Canyon?

Does anyone have any current beta (flows, hazards, etc) for the Mesa Canyon run on the San Juan?

Thanks in advance.

Are you doing the same trip that just ended for my friends and me? You are asking about all the same sections we just did.

No wood issues when we were there last week. The playpark was the most exciting part of the run. As you enter the canyon it mellows out a bit, but the dams provide fun. When we were there, there was enough water not to be concerned about where you went through them. At lower flows I hear you need to pay a little better attention. It would be nice if the run was a few miles shorter. I was ready to be done.

Consider Lake City. We had a great time there. Friendly people. The town section has been improved since the descriptions were written. It's like a 5 mile long play park. The Box was scenic, but lacking in entertainment but for all the wood. Would have liked to done Red Bridge, but not enough time on the last day.
