The guage reading at noon 25.1 cms ... and leveing off. The rains on Thursday/Friday brought up the levels from 18 cms.
Agreed t'was a good level.

What a ride! A good level that made rocks disappear and got everything bigger and faster!

No casualty (almost).

A bit of discussion at pub nite which river to do. Rain in the forecast could be a good thing.

Class III/IV rating including a rather long canyon section. Spring paddling conditions are still here.

Meet places and time
Car pool: Eagleson park and ride: 8:30 am
Putin: in Flinton approx 10:30  ... probably after a brief pit stop in Kaladar
