Look at that thar runoff map...

Life is good on the snow/water equivalent map:


New Mexico isn't painted in orange and red and that is nice to see for a change.

What trips does all this potential have you daydreaming about? Gila? Owyhee? Jarbidge? Your local raging backyard reach?

I will be herding toddlers around so I need your stories to live.

Really hoping that the Dolores has enough for a prolonged late May release. Got some last season, but just a tease on the Slickrock to Bedrock section.

Also hoping for another preseason Salt. Last years was amazing.

Those maps are normally averaged against Year To Date data.

Will be hard pressed to do a ling multiple day float but that snowpack map covers alot of ground with day and 2-3 days trips I can justify.

Local snowpack is 200+% and the house we look to be closing on (fingers crossed) abutts the only real "creek" in the area. Will be fun to watch the melt from my house with a beer in hand.

Share the stories this year aw I will also be living vicariously through folks.

Here in the Upper Arkansas Valley we are in a wonderful sunny and 50 deg warm spell that will have lasted for over a week before the next chance of moisture. So 150% of normal can turn into average pretty quick. But there is another Pacific storm that appears to be heading to the SW.
