Trip Reports

May 10 Upper Platte

 | Published on 5/13/2015
On May 10 a few of us ran the Upper Platte.  The weather was a bit cool and while rain did threaten it did not occur.  The river was a bit fast and just high enough to cover but not float over many obstacles.   We had some snagging on former dock or bridge hardware and stumps just below the surface.  If you run the river watch carefully.
The trip was enjoyed by all but we did have a dump event on the aforementioned obstacles.  There will be some river clean up work for us later in the season.  Fred was not able to get all the trash on this trip but we appreciate his efforts.
