Note: Bottom, photo taken last New Years Day up at Hoover. The top one was a few days before, and because of the ice; I couldn't paddle any further. Really cool!
What better way to bring in the New Year than on the water. We're going to paddle the Big Darby again for several reasons; safety and length of paddle.
We'll meet up at 12:30 so that we can shuttle a vehicle and return to put in at 1:00. We'll plan on taking out at Trapper John's for now, but may move it to 762. I plan on bringing a fire log so that we can stop half way on one of the gravel bars to warm up if needed.
The water levels are up slightly approx. 1 ft. from what they were Sat, and running at about 150cfs faster at 896cfs as oppose 741 the other day. Still going to be cold, but now they are predicting 35 instead of mid-20's.
FYI, if I have to tell you how to dress for these conditions, you most likely shouldn't even attempt it. :)
