Bighorn Sheep canyon ice
A few days ago the river from Rincon to Parkdale was perfectly clear of ice. The situation has changed. I ran a few miles above and below Vallie Bridge today and was rowing through a slurpee river with thick shelves along most of the banks. It was beautiful out and that section was still runnable, though that could change tonight. The lower part of the canyon is not clear. A couple miles above Pinnacle Rock there are a couple serious riverwide ice dams and several other spots along the Pinnacle- Parkdale run looked sketchy at best with narrow slots flowing into thick near riverwide shelves. There could be riverwide ice dams that I couldn't see from the road. I was impressed at how quick the river went from clear to having several inch thick shelves and dams.
