5000 CFS

The Gunni river is running HIGH. Recent warmer weather has caused massive melt off with barely any room under the bridges. East river which runs down from Crested Butte is very full and breaking its banks north of town in Almont.
Today marked the first race in our local Hartmans Rocks Spring races. $15 with free beer and Pizza after. Does it really get any better than that?!
It was a really crusty afternoon with thunder and hail, but the weather broke in time for the 5.45 start and while it was a bit cool (45 degrees) all the hard core locals turned out. ( At least 40 people for the first one) Hartmans post rain was in primo shape. Jeff Irwin had devised a great course. Brian won ( but only just from Jeff). I was 6th and it was a very good mid week workout.
