Black Canyon status?

Been thinking about that amazing crack in the earth, and sure enough, up goes a pic....
Did the huge flows move anything around?
Any wood to know about?
I've only been in over 1K, how's 750?

YEAH dawg!

I went about 1 month ago. There are several big rock slides that came down in the first few miles that were concerning but didn't affect much of the paddling except one of the first rapids(on ramp). The huge flood moved some stuff around. One of the middle hole features in ball crusher got blow out so it is harder to go left at the bottom. also the spouting water fall at the bottom of great fall has been de-watered from the river bed changing in the rest of the rapid. I think those are the only changes I remember but be heads up anyways. Have fun!

Thanks slayer,
I probably wouldn't be running the great falls drop anyway. Looks like flows dropped to ~600, anyone have estimates on flows for the next month? I wanted to do a combo trip and meet up with rafters for the gunny gorge.
