East Fork San Juan wood on move
I was camped at the East Fork gate this weekend with intentions of running the East Fork San Juan. It was flowing as high as I had personally seen it (currently 480 and rising). I walked down to the campground section to get a feel for what it looked like at that flow and immediately saw a couple full size ponderosa pines across the current and a couple large pieces of wood in play with tight lines around them. Without a full scout and flagging the portage eddies (which were small and up in the bushes) I wasn't comfortable putting on. We decided to float Mesa Canyon instead, which is a really fun II-III play boat run at these flows. Epic surf.
Wanted to give a heads up for anyone considering heading that way soon. Take the time to get a thorough look before putting on. Gate is closed.
