San Juan?

High pressure is moving in and it is time to go boating, but I do realize it has been a chilly winter out in the desert this year. Does anyone out there know if the river is clear of ice from Sand Island to Mexican Hat? The river ranger is out until Wednesday, so I was hoping to see if it's been floated recently. Thanks!

There was significant ice in the channel at the 160 crossing last Tuesday, enough to make it impassable....however when I went back over it on Saturday most of the ice was gone, channel was completely clear with some minor ice on the banks. Questionable what you might find in the canyon proper.

Clear of ice and warm enough for flip-flops and shorts.

Did you just get back?

We are headed down for Presidents day weekend and ice in the deep canyon, has been on my mind.
