Parkdale is runnin
Took a road trip with a borrowed dog and a keeper girlfriend from Co. Spgs. to Salida to BV and back.
Checked Parkdale very closely. It's clean of ice bridges and clean of ice in most eddies. From Pinnacle rock down. Now, it doesn't look to be flowing over 300 CFS, but it's open. No ice chunks even floating in the water.
Between Texas Creek and Cotopaxi, there's a lot of snowpack along the river's sides that might throw ice in at some point, but even it looks clean. I'm talking about snowpack about 2 feet thick, but it's all up on the banks.
Stopped at the BV ballfield and it's clean across but really low. The sides have ice all over the place, but if ya wanted to surf, and if it's deep enough, you could.
The whole of the Arkansas that I viewed was remarkably clean of ice everywhere.
