arizona boating

ok here we go sunrise ski resort is open, so we have snow, which means hopefully we'll have a season however short it may be. so for those of you thinking about coming down here are a few things to think about. 1) az is freaking gorgeous and they don't call it the canyon state out of sarcasm. 2) unfortunately i don't think we're gona have a repeat of 2005 so the smaller creeks will flow in small windows as usual if they flow at all. 3) the gauge to watch is http://waterdata.usgs.gov/az/nwis/uv...cd=00065,00060 that's the salt river gauge. 4) the permit system is crap now for the salt so be awares but in any case az rocks and we have snow so i'm exited haha

salt

Any prediction as to whether we'll have flows for the Salt for the end of march? Never been there and we're sending in the apps in a few days.

Thanks,

Ben

keep an open eye on that el nino prediction from NOAA. el nino winters happen in late jan-march and winter just started. dont be surprised if you guys get nailed with above average snow. check out the forecast for jan/feb/mar 07 winetr on the NOAA site.

some models have allready noted a drop in the jet stream; forcasted for the middle of jan.

looks like I'm going to be in AZ early this year. Would love to run Fossil. How much snow is neede for Jacks Canyon to run? Ever been on the upper San Fran? I ran it from Glenwood to the Gila. Need to see it up high. Same with Eagle Creek, etc. Any water near Silver City? Gimme' a shout, shane

azboatin'

no shot in jacks canyon running due to a snow pack (no drainage area and no tributaries); you can only run it after a heavy rainstorm. not sure what your into, but the creeks in the sedona area either plummet off the rim or meander through 3's.

better to canyoneer jacks' canyon

Yeah, figured it to be wishful thinking. Floated Jacks about 4 yrs ago, stagnant puddles. Looked like it had flashed recently. Good climbing I'm told. Ran most of Oak Creek in a rain storm, beautiful, way too much wire, lumber, and the driveway fords were ridiculous. The West Fork is incredible, to hike. There are 20" diameter logs wedged 40' above your head in the slot, amazing. Know any low volume around Globe? What about the LCR headwaters?

jacks

not to thread jack, but jack's is good climbing, if you're into bolts, spandex, and anti-sandbag ratings (that would be called easy, i guess).
