Shoshone Access Closed April 16th to May 26th

they are closing access, we need to get an employee ID so I can start making some for us.
I guess we can always walk up from Grizzly

Ugh. Turning around at Hanging lake to head west and access Grizzly will not be fun on a crowded weekend. I'm predicting a mess in that parking lot.

Shoshone Closures - Public Meeting in Glenwood Spgs 4/7 from 4-6 pm

I know this is last minute, but I am counting on the fact that none of you get anything done at work besides checking the 'buzz so here goes:

CDOT has an initial plan to close all boater and public access to the Shoshone put-in in Glenwood Springs Canyon from next week to the end of May for I-70 construction. While you would be welcome to walk up from Grizzly (which you will only be able to access from Westbound lanes), for those of us with big fat rafts that is a bit more of a logistical nightmare.

If you can, come to the Glenwood Springs Rec Center today (Thursday the 7th) to meet with CDOT and explain our concerns. It sounds like they are amenable to the idea of finding a compromise and were unaware of the difficulties this would cause such a large and vocal community. But we do need to be large and vocal.

Here is the Post Independent Article for more info: Glenwood Canyon concrete paving to begin April 16, continue through June | PostIndependent.com

Save Our Ramp!!! Lets come up with a workable solution. We especially need outfitters and guides, they will have the most pull.

It's an evil plot by the kayakers to turn us rafters into kayakers!
