Lobs Hole gauge changed due to flood

It seems like the big water last month has changed the lobs hole gauge, presumably by moving some sand or debris about in the pool where the gauge is located. I paddled Red Rocks on Saturday with the lobs gauge reading about 2.5m, but the actual level seemed more like 2.1 – 2.2ish. Have a look at the graph comparing the last months water levels to see what I mean.

I’d be guessing that 2.4 at lobs is a scrapey minimum level for Red Rocks trips, corresponding to about 2.0m before the change to the gauge.


Edit: Looks like they have now fixed the gauge (16/8/07).

More Canada Pics

Here are some more photos from my Canada trip. I spent the last three weeks paddling almost every day, based in Vancouver, which is blessed with three fantastic rivers right in town. The Capilano is a nice III which runs most of the year, the Lynn is a brilliant grade IV creek with a fun canyon section, and the Seymour has sections from II+ up to V. Then within two hours drive are the Cheakamus, the Chilliwack and the Chehalis as well as bunch of creeks, and a short drive/ferry ride away is the famous Skookumchuck. The creek pics are from a rarely paddled creek out near skook called Chapman creek.
