Well, it was a horrible year to live on the front range. I can claim personal all-time low water descents on Lower CC and SSV (during LOG). And a few Bailey laps kept the season from completely ending when I couldn't get out of town. And, I paddled a lot of low water class II with my daughter, which is always cool.
Yampa Canyon through Dino self support.
Rio Grande self-support, starting at top of Razorblades section, ending below Lower Taos Box. Favorably caught peak flow of the season on the Upper Box. Squeezed in an ELF Embudo, and another lap on the Upper Box in the same 4 days.
San Juan, Bluff to Mex Hat. Personal first. Family raft trip. Rad.
Mas Embudo, with okay flow.
Marsh Creek - MF Salmon - Main Salmon - Lake Creek Bridge. 6 day, 5 night self-support. Fun crew. Three nights of hot springs. One night of Mackay bar luxury (beer, steak). Probably the coolest trip of the year. Definitely the fastest 220 miles I've ever kayaked.
Lake Creek x2 for Paddlefest. Finally some stout class V!
My first, rather scary, rather magical, early morning solo descent of Vallecito Creek! Sometimes the worst ideas are the best ideas.
I think I ran Bailey, and I ran Gore once, as a warmup for,
Clark's Fork Yellowstone, The Box! As far as whitewater goes, this was certainly the biggest and best of the year.
Finally rafted Desolation. Great place to explore, and holy hell is it flat.
RHT - Westy kayak.
Rio Chama. Self-support with my daughter.
Not bad for a drought year.
