    Thom mentioned ice in the highway 7 eddies. Has anyone checked it out?

    Was thinking of going Sunday morning.

    will anyone be likely going to any of the hiway 7 runs during the week?
    that would be good for me.
    what are the runs like at this time of year
    i have never run them before


    Both the Black and Beaver creek are low, but runnable. There are signigicant flatwater sections on both the runs, so I would expect ice to be an issue. In the moving-water sections, I doubt that ice will be much of an issue.

    Beaver creek is easy to gauge, if there is ice at the put-in, there is probably ice between the rapids. The Black is a little harder to gauge since it is moving water at the put-in.

    Just be aware that both runs have sections that are quite remote, in terms of accessing help. Getting someone out can be difficult.
