Ice at House Rock Rapid
Heads up Arkansas River ELFers Larry and I had a great run yesterday 1/10/12 to start our new year, Miner's Camp to Beuna Vista. Eagles, Beaver, sunshine, and great winters flows were in abundance. All of that reach of river was open, but the barely there ice shelves were getting bigger as we got closer to BV and farther from the warm water inflow of Twin Lakes. We elected to portgage House Rock, the river right eddies were completely ice covered with just a couple of feet of open water and a lot of current pushing under the ice. River left had a lot of ice also, kind of a surprise after the way things looked upstream.
