Shoshone/Grizzly

There was an event this morning, lots of wood in the river, and the river is running black.

Please use caution.

The guage says it popped to 5 grand last night around midnight. We had some pretty crazy rainstorms in Vail and Summit, seems that around Dotsero and in the canyon they got one as well. Anyone run Shoshone yet today?

mistake?

there has to be an error in the gage since below glenwood gage never hit 5000cfs. But it definately bounce up a lot.

The Glenwood paper says there were a bunch of mudslides in the Dotsero area that buried the railroad tracks in several spots, and the Dotsero gauge seems to have gone offline as of 7 this morning. Think it got hit by one of those mudslides?

Drove up the Colorado River Road this AM. Very impressive mud slides! Also impressive was the response from the Eagle County Road Crew. Kudos to you guys!

so, the river was cranking for a minute, that is for sure.

just drove upriver of shoshone and past the canyon, drove up colorado river road and there was a big rain event there, because every drainage had overtaken the road, littering the area with sticks and logs.

As for shoshone, runnable as of 4:00, but stay heads up, tons of new wood in there, and stuff is shifting.
