ESCALANTE UPDATE 4-6-14

First of all - No it's not runnable yet. But it is muddy, which means it is probably primed to go. I don't think the snow pack is that great so it may be a low or short (or both) season.

We removed a log from the entry of Leap of Faith and we removed a log from the entry of 57 Chevy.

These were not huge logs and probably would have washed out with high water.

The log just below Leap of Faith has washed out to a non-dangerous position (this could change with high water.) But for now it is good to go.

Keep an eye on the temps and when the night-time lows in Montrose and Delta are 50 degrees or above it should start running enough to get down.

Cool looking run! just looked up some info on it and it says that glass is prohibited in the area and ticketing can occur if glass is seen by the rangers... Can you elaborate on such reasons? This is the first I have heard of a no-glass policy enforcement... Any other places that this is the case in the western states?

At lower flows, locals like to swim in the potholes and pools. Some also like to get drunk and bust beer bottles. Not a great combination.

Because so many people just don't use common sense!

If its going to happen, it will be this week. Columbine pass only got down to 38 degrees last night. Would be great to get a visual on Thurs/Fri...

My guess is that its running, but low to very low this weekend.

Hoping we don't see the warm up / cool down cycles that dribble out the snowpack without really getting decent flows.

Gore is currently 1260cfs though, so april flows are in!
