Made it out to Salida and the Numbers of the Ark this weekend. Another rafter died on the Ark; I think that makes 4 or 5 deaths on the river this summer. On Friday I played in Salida, and then some boaters from MN were in town, so we all camped in BV and then a few of us ran the Numbers on Saturday. The numbers was running at about 2,500 cfs the last time I ran it; this time around it was at 1,000 or so. It was a fun run, with some good moves in the rapids. I'd definately do it again at this level, but I did find myself yearing a bit for something steeper. Maybe I'll hit some creeks next week, and hopefully I'll have some photos.
