That was supposed to have really changed the dynamics of that rapid.
Pic from park service looking west, fall is on the right. Tell me how it is!
No, I haven't been able to go since the new rock fall, however lots of my raft buddies have. They tell me while a new hydraulic now exists in the center of the channel, (warm springs is left of center) the run on the right hasn't changed much. Just now there isn't as much room as before.
My last trip though was the year before the new fall. We had almost record flow at 24,000 to 26,000. Warm springs, at that level, was bigger than almost anything I've seen in the Grand Canyon!
The Yampa has always been my favorite…
