I think that Lake Creek's flow has a big future ahead. As most already know, this is the same creek that Independence Pass meanders along. They usually clear snow and open the pass for Memorial Day weekend. This year the road opened about 2 weeks late. Some guys that I was camping near recently said they drove over the pass the day after it opened and the walls of snow next to the road where 25-30 feet high. Might be an over-estimate, but might not, (I wasn't there). These same people own a home on the Frying Pan River and they said that it is still very much winter with way too much snow at their house. Alot of that Frying Pan River water is piped through the Continental Divide and gets dumped in the Arkansas River for Colorado Springs drinking water.
On top of that, Aspen Mountain re-opened for sking this weekend after getting 3 feet of fresh snow, as David23
As far as the Arkansas River is conserned, I'm looking at it with a "glass-half-full" perspective this year. My guess is we have a prolonged medium-water season and have yet to hit the highest peak. I'm still rooting for 5000+cfs. (please oh please oh please)
