Parkdale/Royal Gorge Combo Wednesday 9 JUNE 2004
Royal Gorge runs are in the 90 minute range at 1900 cfs yesterday, (it's at about 2200 cfs today) so I'm thinking a Parkdale/Gorge combo is really needed to get a good fix at these levels. Put on at Pinnicle Rock and takout at the Canon City wave. Anyone interested? I get home from work at 8:00am and can put on as soon as 9:00am. It's been 100+ degrees down here, so a earlier put-on will keep us from boiling up. I'm thinking 10:00 at the latest, but can wait a bit longer if that works better for you. (I'm looking to be off the river before 3:00pm.) Let me know if you can go. (719)661-4377. (leave the polar fleece and polypro at home, you won't need it.)

ps..... Who'd a thunk it? I thought it would peak at 1500, 2000 max, and today it's at 2200 cfs. I need a new magic 8-ball. Mine lied to me.
