Glad to see the Grand County Sheriff out in force. Watch out for them on the way home. It's 'stuff the Utah treasury season at the expense of green plates' season.

brand new high-side here I come!

also, if pulled over and harassed by Utah checkpoints you A. do not have to let them search, and B. if you do have out of state beer you can simply let them know you are just passing through Utah which should be interstate commerce and thus immunizing those tasty little devils without special underwear and no postmortem solar system, or utah state stamp.

Stateline was indeed just over 2Gs when we ran Saturday afternoon. The rocks choking up the stream bed were mostly covered. All ten rafts in our group ran left-center to center successfully. We had a paddle boat go down the fabled left channel after the initial drop, they had no issues, but I still wouldn't recommend it.

Diversion Dam went well extreme river left.

We had a boat wrap left-center about half-way through Rockslide but cleaned it up nicely. The currents in that rapid will test the river reading skills of a boatman, especially with a weighted boat (Fun Rapid!).

It looks like the more water the better for Stateline but, the more water the more difficult for Rockslide (unless one of the critical moves blow out at a certain flow).

The slot canyon hike, river-right, in the heart of the gorge, is a must.
