Westwater-Release?

Flows have been rising steadily.... Is just from the recent precip? Or is there some sort of release taking place?

I cant picture it getting much above 6 or 8 k without a full on monsoon. I don't know what alll goes into that forecast model, but there must be some perameter way off to project 13K in oct.

Dpending on what your plans are in the canyon 5K is a lot more fun than 13K.

I don't see any storm that look like they could do that on the weather maps. What else could that be based on?

Willie.......I'll try to keep my spurs from jinglin' and janglin' too much in the next two days and hope for the best!! I'm sure we'll cross paths......the ranger station at the very least. The weekend forecast looks good and the precip is destined to make atleast a little impact (not sure I'm buyin' 12-13k though). Good stuff....
