Wow! Great day. Level was 15.25 on the gauge. This means that we all ran down McKoy's rapid in a straight line, no need to manoeuver at all! Always a bit strange when you can see the water below the rapid while approaching it. Phil's Hole looked like a nice surf wave. We got some entertainment when Bruce ran Garvin's chute and spent a bit of time visiting each hole along the way... Water was still very warm and everybody (16 of us) got off the river with a smile.

This turnout is great! I guess everyone wants one last kick at the can before the cold sets in!
Level is now 11.5!

Hi

Just to clarify --- we are meeting at the "WT parking lot" as indicated on the map.

I will drop by the Eagleson park & ride --- on the way there

now is past tense --- currently 10 and rising ... but should level off later Friday since there is no more rain in the forecast ..

RR main gate is closed --- but the access road to the once "free takeout" is open

I am likely in. The level is up to 8.25 as of now.
