When half of Colorado was being flooded by the biggest and most destructive rain event in recorded history,some of us were filling our cars with rafting and kayaking gear to chase the water around! The Front Range was inaccessible, and after a few days at Lawson (Clear Creek) Byers Canyon (Colorado) and backcountry hike-in boating at Arapaho Creek, the Arkansas River was the only accessible river with plenty of water left, and the Royal Gorge looked juicy. The Gauge had it listed around 800CFS, but that doesnt account for all the storm drainage entering below it, so it was flowing proper with chocolate-milk-storm-water! Considering the fact that Colorado is always dry in September, we'll take it when we can! Plus, we were the only people on the river!
