R2 runnable stuff in Colorado??

Hello mountain friends,

Were dropping in from Oregon June 21-26 and are looking to run some CO goodness despite a low water year. We'll scape an R2 down just about anything...suggestions?
Gore at 200cfs?
We may just fall back on Clear Creek, Pine Cr/Numbers, Royal Gorge-

Thanks in advance, hope to see yall soon.

Gore no less than maybe 500. Clear creek will likely be done. Royal gore would be fun, but not terribly challenging. Pretty canyon! Pine creek/numbers should have "enough water."

Bailey would be a hoot in a shredder above 400 and doable above 350 or so. I be you could find some kayakers to show you down.

If youre willing to hike in and out, you might be able to add cascade creek (3rd gorge lime creek) on to the beginning of a rockwood trip, depending on if the water holds. I r2'd it earlier this year at 2.01 feet on the cascade creek gauge in a 12 ft nrs, and it was amazing.

Bailey is a great r-2 run, just be aware of anything higher than 500 the bridges on the float in get very low in a raft.

I have portaged the bridge at the dream house with asking the landowners permission as they were outside.
