Level for Spencer?

Anyone been up there recently and looked at the gauge at Sportman's? And/or checked out the situation for trees on Joe Wright and Spencer Heights?

Up there 2 days ago. Level was 3.5 on the Pineview, 2.5 on the Sportmans. No water coming in on the Laramie Tunnel. Joe Wright was running but only at a level Keck would want. Water was going over the Carnito boof but not enough to boof. Big south was looking good, hiked up to Slideways. No scary ferry there.

And now what you have been waiting for: Spencers looked good and clean. Didn't see in the mini gorge but everything else was good to go and the mushroom boof on cyclotron looked prime

This morning Joe Wright and Spencer were both running High. This afternoon Joe Wright came down to Medium flow and Spencer Heights rose to Screaming High levels. Tons of new wood floating down Big South and Spencer Heights right now. By 8pm Spencer Heights was running as high as I've ever seen it (see attached pics).

Sportsman Gauge: 3.4 @ 10am & 4.0 @ 4pm. The river kept rising all day, and by 8pm the gauge had washed out (as in, it's no longer there...). No water was coming through tunnel all day.

The first photo attached is of Carnito Canyon from earlier this morning, and the rest are from Spencer Heights this evening. I'll be posting a few more photos and videos to the rock report site shortly...

Great pictures! Keep it safe out there. It sounds like the water is getting really high, and a swim could be ones last.
