    Sorry for the silly question. We are coming to Durango for the Ironhorse Bike race. In previous year, I have brought a playboat and a Surf SUP. The kids watch while I surf for a few hours. The snowpack is really low this year. And more dismal the further south you get in the Rockies. I do...

    Hey fellow rafters. i am new to the sport and just did the Moab daily as a first ride last weekend and had a blast. I was planning on heading to Durango this weekend to run the town run on the animas, as it is usually class II-III. 3 days ago the river was 1,700 cfs and now it is at 750...

    I might be watching a house in Pagosa Springs a few weeks in August. What do you expect the flows to be on the upper Animas? Still enough for a ducky? Sent from my iPhone using Mountain Buzz
