Just got back from cat last night. I was the only one down there, great desert solitude. I camped in new places and I hiked to new places. The canyon itself seems to bee just as we left it. No significant changes, except for what I have been calling "Canopener" (pronounced like a Canadian)rapid. The new rapid that formed directly below that enormous can opener looking rock during last years huge rainfall. The new rapid seems to be much more defined, or is it refined.
Looks like lake foul is still dropping. So the Dirty Devil take out is a little worse than last year. I was able to lug all of my stuff up the hill by myself in about an hour.
