[TR] Upper Taylor @ 200 cfs = Fun

Met up with some folks from all over on Saturday for a run on the Taylor. We had folks from Durango, BV, Gunny, and Kansas, all over the place. And whoever said you couldnt have fun on 200 cfs has never been to the Taylor. It did rain on us halfway down but really, it wasn't bad at all, and it was a small price to pay to get to enjoy this fun river.

Yes, they turned down the flow, but trust me, at this level its still more than worth it. And it will be this way through most of August!

And that's it. If you want some, come get it. I will be around most weekends this month....PM if interested.

Kit, thanks for showing us down on Saturday. You have a beautiful river up there, and our crew had way more fun than we were expecting for 200 cfs. I haven't looked at my pics yet, but If I have any good ones I'll try to post them this week. Cheers!
