Guys we are going to have very short windows to run any of our favorite western slope creeks and rivers this year. I did a run on Lower Anthracite yesterday and did some flossing but was by myself so not to successful getting bigger stuff out. If anyone wants to do this run it is more than worth it. I do not expect this run to last more than 3 weeks this year. Snowpack is 40% of normal and no snow below 9000 ft. at all. Fast, tight, changing to channels with strainers, in a secluded canyon with no other people. Give me a jingle at 497-6512 if interested. Next week flows will probably top so will combine with Lower Crystal run below Redstone and then it will be done. To give everyone a reality check, there has been no snow on top of Mclure Pass for 2 weeks now ( 9,500 ft. ), and no snow below 9000 period. Very little snow above 10,000 in entire West Elk range. Better get it now!!
