Just to let everyone know, we cruised by Escalante last Friday on our way to Durango (well, went an hour out of the way in hopes it might be running) and it wasnt even close.... There was some water, but not nearly enough. So there you have it, no Escalante yet. It could have been running before but seems doubtfull.... Seeing as how it got chilly again on Saturday, I doubt if the creek came up any more.
I know everyone's hoping Escalante will run large this year, so if anyone knows when its running, please post. Chamberlain doesn't seem to be on the buzz this year (Tom if your reading this you know we all rely on you for the precious Escalante beta) but hopefully he'll do the traditional posting to open up the Escalante season.
