Had some buddies heading up to North Fork last Sunday. I'll see if I can find out how it went.

697 on the NFC should be fun. Here's some pics from last year (at 1000 - 1200ish) if anyone wants to check some of the upper run drops: The Colorado Kayak Chronicle: Cyrstal Creeking - A high Water Event - North Fork of the Crystal and Crystal Mill Falls

Punchbowls should be great too at this level. John Meyers was telling me that he tried to access via Schoffield from CB a few days ago and that we'd have to hike a ways to access them, like from the top of the pass CB side.
Here are some pics from last year at about what I believe the current flow is: The Colorado Kayak Chronicle: First "Backwards Female Descent"! At the Devils Punchbowls.

Meng-I got yer message, but I can't find your number. NFC next weekend! We're gonna camp all weekend, and Punchbowl's too! The Punchbowl's from Marble side, only has a 1/2 mile walk, if that. Big avalanche still blocking road just down from the bridge.
We ran the NFC today, and scouted Punchbowl's, both are good levels. I'd give them a med-low on the flow side. I'd like to see a couple other groups around next weekend, so grab yer boof stroke, and let's do this!
