Escalante in ........ October

I know, I know; "Escalante season is in the spring".
But.........why not in October (esp. the lower reach)?
Historical average in mid-October is 3 cfs (at the hwy 12 bridge).
Any thoughts or, better yet, experience?
Thanks.

S. Fk. Flathead, Young's Pass fire damage

Hi, I am looking for information on the trail conditions over Young's Pass since the fire last summer that, apparently, burned up the Young's and Jenny Creek drainages ..... I.e.; is it likely to be 15 miles of black soot billowing up with every footstep? :evil: Have been trying to reach a Bob Marsh...

Re: Portland, Oregon Packrafters

HI, I am in Bend. There are tons of great day runs in the PDX area. You might check-in with one of the several clubs up there (OKCC, PDX Kayaker, LCCC) for groups going out.

Re: PFD ride up from capsize!

Ridge Rover, Assuming you have the right size PFD, you probably didn't have it tight enough. Too loose and they can even float off. Adjust it so that a friend (standing in front of you) can't lift the shoulder straps more than a few inches. It should be "snug" but not "tight". After you have it adju...
