We ran Escalante today. I would say it is on the mid to high range of low. The fin at 57 was exposed, but had a roostertail forming over it. We ran everthing except rib-ripper and the falls. Everthing is clean, but there is debris and logs randomly throughout the section. Scout the major drops. We moved several river wide logs out of the river and up onto higher ground. There was a river wide below the falls that we moved, and a few scattered 2-4 foot pieces scattered between the falls and magnetic wall. Keep an eye on the boulder section in that area if the logs move and get jammed in that area. There is still snow visible up high at the putin, so more good flows could be coming. Pray for more snow, prelong the season.

This is going to create some serious havoc in my life, but I'm in. John and Co, what time are you planning on starting? I will probably not come down until that morning and may want to run it later. Alex, Chris what's your plans?

I may be able to hit a run on Friday, but would be enroute to Durango.

In other news, Johnny... would you be game for a Baker's Box run on Sunday? Anyone else? I could use someone to paddle with, and a guide for the current hike-in route.

Kyle,
If there is enough water I would go in there with you on Sunday. Looks like it may be a bit cool around here the next couple of days which may keep it on the low low side. Don't think I have your number anymore but if you are in the area PM me with a number and Ill give you a call back to figure something out.

Saturday runs

Hey Kyle or Joe,
If you guys get a run in on Friday, let me know how things are looking.
Glen, I'll be doing a Saturday run for sure, and possibly camping Saturday for some Sunday laps too. Let me know if you're interested.
