Are Gates of Lodore still running? How many days float?

Is Lodore still running, and how many days would it take to get down comfortably, starting 7/9?


May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.

No, it's stopped and completely out of water. Right now according to the backpacking boards I've been closely monitoring; a best guess is 2-3 weeks--and that's with trekking poles and the wind at your back. Remember to carry out your Reece's feces.

I would cancel your Deso and show up at Lodore without a permit. Starting on the the 9th I would plan on 10 days, 9 days if you started on 10th. If there was only a gauge to tell if it was flowing. USGS Current Conditions for USGS 09234500 GREEN RIVER NEAR GREENDALE, UT
