  1. River Access & Safety Alerts!
    We ran Box 2 and Box 1 Piedra yesterday. We launched at 740 cfs on the Arboles gauge. We took out at closer to 650 cfs. Within an hour or so we came to a tree blocking the entire river. It has fallen from river right and landed or the river left shore. The water level was even with the trunk...
  2. Whitewater Rafting
    There was a discussion on another thread about round boat vs cat designs for a sweep boat. I think the long parallel tubes allow a cat to track significantly better. My boat is built on 20' x 30" tubes. Below is some video from a recent MFS trip.

    I was planning on getting a group of Chaffee county paddlers together for a low flow trip over Cottonwood Pass for one last run on the Taylor. The gauges say 250 below the dam, and the New Testament says the minimum is 200. I ran it at 300 last year and it seemed low, but still do-able, and most...
