Ran it today from 95 bridge to upper lake boat ramp. SO FUN!
Did it in 3.5 hours stopping for lunch.

Mama Chama has EASY sneak (for kayaks) on right, we didn't even scout.

Everything else mostly class II+

Section below footbridge/Heron Dam is fun and fast. No slog with El Vado being so low. Actually flew past the boat ramp. Look for a bouy floating and that is about where we should have taken out. There will be some low cliffs on the river right - probably want to get out there.

Also - 2 cables easy to duck (in kayaks).

Low head dam - run on far river right.

Awesome, suz! Thanks for the info. I'm getting excited to check it out! It's not often that us New Mexicans get to try out a new run in the state.
