Yeah, that lower stretch of the Dirty Devil will be interesting to watch. Looks a lot like the lesser side drainages to Powell. The reservoir and modern weather are creating what looks similar to rapid arroyo cutting. More of those rains like we saw in September and its likely to drag those steep sided chutes farther up river. That is until the next time Powell rises and inundates the Dirty Devil again, if ever.

@John - thanks soooo much for this info and the accompanying shot. This forum has been so great and helpful. If you dont mind - where did you guys take out? Past the campsites on river R I assume? So badass that you took a mini-me through there.

Mini-me's are the perfect boat for that river.

Beaver Creek

It has been a looong time since I ran the DD, but we used to exit at Beaver creek to avoid lake foul. I don't even know if the road is still there, it was pretty sketchy in the late 80's.
