Well I decided to re-route a trip north to bitch creek south for some time in my favorite mountains of colorado, the San Juans,(gas $)
Wondering if it would be reasonable to paddle the animas around 300 cfs at silverton. this is what i'm guessing it will be when I hope to put-on on Monday July 20th. Plan on self supporting with an extended stay to do some hiking and maybe bag a 14er in Chicago basin. Sunlight-Windom. maybe paddle Shoshone-barrel spgs on the way back, i don't think much else is running in western colorado but i'm open for class 4-5 suggestions. Leaving from Vail Sunday or Monday 4-6 day paddle-hike trip.
