High water year in Colorado

With around 135% snow pack in the mountains, high levels have been sustained across the state. Many rivers and playspots, that are usually only good a few weeks a year, are still flowing now in mid-late July.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do a lot of kayak since I am recovery from a low back injury and my wife is recovering from hamstring surgery. However, it has been great to do a little playboating 25 minutes away from home in Golden at these higher levels.

Here is a quick video of Golden at 1200 cfs. Compared to lower levels, wave tricks go better and it is deeper for plugging loop tricks.
