Whats hot

So looks like run-off is here in earnest. Thought I'd start a thread about what is flowing in prime conditions for rafting. I'll start with a few runs around Glenwood. Shoshone is running about 8k. Extremely good conditions. Commercials are probably off until it gets below 6k. Be on top of your game - fast and furious. Run a few laps. The Crystal is 1500. Just a little too high to clear the bridges but if you see is 1200 to 1400 in the morning it is one of the funnest class III's around. Put in Avalanche creek, run to West Bank or Glenwood. The Roaring Fork is roaring at 9k. Not a lot of rapids but very fast. Basalt to Glenwood is all great right now. Haven't been on the upper Fork but probably nice also.

Run Sho Sho a few years back, at about 9000. Was the funest kick in the pants I have ever had!
Kept standing a 14’ raft on end throughout the run, two large friends paddling for me that where Gore paddlers, they wanted to gut every hole in sight.

God that was fun!!!

High water is scary; put the boat in the garage and wait until August.
