Spring Break Options...
Okay buzzards, I had planned on taking a four day float down the green river from Ruby Ranch to Mineral Bottom starting on Saturday, March 6th (our spring break) as an 18th birthday cruise for a good buddy's son. We made these plans in late December.
Subsequently, the winter has been cold and wet for our part of the country (Grand Junction)! After calling the John Wesley Powell Museum today, the nice woman there, Joanne, disuaded me...she said "We've been the coldest spot in Utah the last six weeks and there is still two feet of snow on the ground. The water!is flowing but there is a lot of ice on the river and it just looks cold. I wouldn't do it..."
The picture of Dewey Bridge on the 14th made me leary of Ruby/Horsethief...I would hate to have to portage around a frozen Black Rocks as I have seen pictures of that...it looked like it sucked...
SO...to make a short story long...what are your suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any advice (especially anybody that lives in the Moab area...)
