I haven't been to Durango in years and was wondering what Smelter rapid was like now. I read some stuff online about modifying it. No recent posts on you-tube either.
Is it a good play spot now? I may be there a few days this summer.
Also what about the wave below the foot bridge after you cross under the road?
Any camping beta would be appreciated; we used to really like the Junction Creek campground, but the last time I was there it was crowded and noisy.
