Thinking about heading down on Sunday to do Gauntlet Child's Play -- but am I too late? Is it flooded? Kinda wondering if we will even have flooding this year what with the lack of snow pack and all. . . but don't want to drive an hour down there and be underwater. Anyone know?

This would be a perfect time to attempt this cache. I've been out of town for a week, but there should be little if any snow. Go for it, and have fun.

I was out on the east side of the park today, and the river is not extra high. I don't think there would be any problems with any of the stages. Those closest to the river are secured in place, but I don't think that was ever a factor this spring. Enjoy!

The river is two feet lower than usual. And probably 6 feet lower than it normally would be this time of year. Get out there before nettles and bugs.
