As jeffsssmith says, great level. Water temps are in the low 60s and the sun sets in the canyon early so be prepared for it to be a bit cool.

We ran it yesterday and the good stuff was plenty good. The flat stuff is grueling - in a playboat at least.

If anyone's got an opening or two on their WW permit, I'd jump at the chance to join in, even/especially on very short notice.

Thanks!

Heading up soon. Any concerns on vehicle safety at put-in/takeout? Midweek.

We've never had a problem. The put in has the ranger there, the takeout is so out of the way that idiots don't venture down to cause problems.

That's been our experience over 30+ years.
