    I have too many Toyotas...
    Everything... and a bag of Cheetos.
    A friend and I ran it in a raft from Bernalillo to Alameda two weeks ago at 4900. It was a great day. There were lots of people on the river and we saw three capsized canoes. We recovered one of them and tied it up in a back eddy.

    I guess there is a company in Bernalillo who rented canoes to a bunch of beginners and many of them lost their boats and had to be evacuated. It is definitely prime time, though.

    That spike to almost 7K cfs on the 10th is insane. I would have loved to see it that day. We walked the dogs in the bosque near Bridge today and large portions of the forest are flooded... so much so that we had to cut our walk short.

    I HATE chrome! It's on the to do list. My friend has a chrome grille she's gonna sell me on the cheap so I can redneck plastidip it for the time being. I do want to get my hands on a sport grille though.

    I've debadged Tabby, and my first piece of armour is going to be a rear bumper with a swing out. That will rid Tabby of all that nonsense chrome.

    We will meet up at 0800 at Cracker Barrel on Coors and I-40. From there we are going to head west to Grants and meet up with anyone NOT coming from ABQ. Once we are set we will head up the mountain. The peak is above 11,000 feet and my plan is to head there. It's been 28 years since I've been up there so IDK what we will encounter. There is a fire look-out tower at the top and magnificent views. This group will undoubtedly be smaller than the group heading to Abiquiu the following weekend, but fun nonetheless.

    We'll be bringing our 2 4Runners. Most the climb should be easy peasy but the back side may be a little muddy. Looked like it snowed a little up there from my house today and there's a slight chance for more this week. Saturday looks like it'll be nice.

    It's good to see the floodplain connecting to the river! The trees need it for sure, and im pretty stoked to see how the channel looks after it recedes this summer.

    Nick, I'm wondering why they aren't holding more water back in Cochiti Lake; I thought that's what it's there for. :notsure:

    It's a good thing to let the bosque flood every now and then. It needs the moisture and helps drive out the bums that live in there.

    It was snowing pretty good coming home from work this morning out west as well. I thought Mt. Taylor would be solid white this afternoon when I got up but it doesn't look like much up there. I guess it all melted already so it'll probably be a little muddy up there tomorrow.

    Cochiti is a flood control dam more than anything. They're likely trying to keep some room in it for the last of the snowmelt, and the summer monsoon.
