The kayak is in the pin-spot the left side of waterslide- WHERE NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE.

Hot tip- if the center boof at waterslide is dry with a log sitting on top of it, don't try to run the boof or you will fall into the pin spot. Run the right channel instead.

Flow was high in mornings this weekend. Padded side of good during the day. It was hot with some rain up high?

Some wood for sure moving around and pinned kayak moved down to the falls, far, far left side underneath boulder.

I have to go to Montrose tomorrow so I'm sticking around through Sunday at Escalante. Come find me at the takeout and paddle the best class 4 in Colorado with me.

Ran it yesterday evening at the low point in daily fluctuations. Still a great level, maybe high side of medium/low side of high.

Of note, the huge log that was a mandatory portage has flushed and been deposited in a great spot. Whatever high flows ripped through there within the last two weeks had to have been impressive. In the lower gorge there were debris piles 6-7' above the current solid water level.

Anyways, it's all clean so enjoy a top to bottom run without getting out of your boat. If it rises high again that all may change though.

It’s still running. Ran it today at a solid medium flow and hot weather.

Boof is not in anymore. The fin is starting to get exposed and it looks like the end of the season is nigh for Escalante. It’s slowly dropping and it’s hot out. Fun fact: Tyler is there
