not sure about the rest of the state, but there have been more dust on snow events than usual this year in the Rio Grande basin. In a lot of places, the two most recent dust layers have already converged. Boo to short, quick runoff.

This is going to be a very short season this year. The La Nina/El Nino flip came faster than ever. Maybe we'll get lucky and get some snow in April, but I doubt it.
And the Lord said, let there be whitewater. So on Friday, the 13th day of the month....

short season?

Hmmm, I don't know - just got off a 7 day on the San Juan - the best part about shitty weather and low water is it scares all the sissys off.
I'm looking forward to another shoulder wrenching technical water year... If you want big waves go to water world.
I'll be the one rocking Clear Creek at 120 CFS with a shit eating grin on my face.

[QUOTE=waterismyfriend;267586]Hmmm, I don't know - just got off a 7 day on the San Juan

WIMF, How was the upper San Juan? I put in on the 11th and stay on until the 14th, all on the SI to MH section. I can't wait. Any trip advice or fun information to share?
