This was some BIG water this year from the still 15 feet of snow up in the mountains. Lets say a normal flow for the river is 1200 cfs(cubic feet per second), this year it was 7000+ cfs, that’s a LOT of water, and it was COLD, all snow melting. River Data for Memorial Day Weekend.
On the last run, at the big rapid, there was a hole that we got stuck in, then flipped the whole raft. We all had to swim for about 5 minutes. After about 10 seconds in the water, I was almost completely wiped out from the cold, and I even had a wetsuit on. Ken lost his glasses, and the flap on his hat finally fell off.
