Escalante was good

I will post a trip report today on the Team D site but figured it would help to put a quick post. We went down and put on around 11am Tuesday. Level was on the the high side of low, may be medium by some opinions. I have done it lower. It was a great level either way. We were able to run everything and even took two first timers down who did great. Nice and warm with fun flows. And I got to go boatin' with Joe! It was a great day. Looks like it while run for a while as there is a ton of snow up high. I posted a photo of Escalante Falls as well.

I can leave after 4pm friday. It'd be cool to make it back for the River Clean Up on sunday, but not absolutely necessary. Car pool anyone?
Joe

Browntown, I gotta be back in Denver friday night, and can't leave til friday am, so its a one day rally for me. If you guys leave thur night and are going to run it friday, let me know. I can take other folks in my car, but assume not many are interested in a one day trip.
