Tom, we missed you. We needed the local legend to guide us through.
Everything was good to go on Escalante. Saturday morning was definetly the best level, just over medium flow. Two runs on the falls that day, one that didn't make the cut to the right resulting in a sweet piton to 180 to switch boof combo, and one that barely made it.
Second run was lower and subsequently much easier paddling. Today the river was substantially lower, probably about 3 inches lower in the gorged sections.
Good weekend overall. Tons of paddlers fired it up. Glad to see everyone getting after it early.
