Driving back from the Conejos Sunday Phil U. and I decided to go over Stunner Pass and down the Alamosa River Valley. I was impressed with what I saw.
I know Wightman Fork drains the super fund site at Summitville and contributes enough cyanide to the river that fish can't survive.... but I wonder if anyone ever boats it? Looked like many miles of beautiful II+/III- with one small gorge containing a long and fun looking class IV rapid.
Water didn't look orange or anything.... curious if anyone has any information about the safety of boating this water? Thanks.
Here are a few pics for reference. Sorry the poor lighting, it was almost dark.
