I'm coming to Boulder next weekend. Hoping to get on the river, R2. Too dry here in the SW, not to mention the heat. Never boated this before, looking to meet with some locals for a tag along. Maybe Sunday or Monday, the 28th or 9th..

Whether U Think U Can, or Think U Can't; U R Right!

I walked this again at lunch today (sadly walking, not boating... LOL) and removed one fallen tree (3-4" diameter) that spanned the right channel downstream from the Greenhouse access. There is another "stump" roughly 4-5 feet long still in the creek in that channel, barely hanging on to a rock (just out of my reach in work clothes, unfortunately). Wouldn't take much to get out of a boat there and remove that one, even less to bump it free and send it downstream.

There is still a fallen tree at the Greenhouse access point, between the left and right channels just after where the creek separates into two channels. With the removal of the above mentioned log, left is better, right is doable in a kayak now, but you can't cross over once you choose a channel.

With my son's baseball season winding down, I will be open starting next week some evenings for some rafting and would be able to help remove things that are still in the way, if anyone is interested by then... LOL

Took he oat rig from the mouth down to the greenhouse at 30th. It is a little bony but still do able. Levels are dropping pretty quickly. The tranches that annoy need to mostly be gotten with a pole saw. Lots of random sweepers that scrape you up but aren't true hazards.
