I think I got the gages wrong. I ran this at 205 cfs on the gage below Platoro Reservoir in 2002
and it was fine although a bit low. I must have been looking at a downstream gage when I wrote the
original description. No fences in 2002 but things can change, keep your head up! Watch for barbed
wire fences that may be strung across the river!
There are various options for putting in. After you pass "The Pinnacles" on the road you can pretty

Nothing on this run is very tough but there is a probably Class IV drop right below "The
Pinnacles." There is not much chance of seeing other humans and the setting is very scenic.
