The State of the Rockies Summer Research trip has begun. The Rockies research team left Colorado Springs today and are on their way to Avon, CO. Along the way we’ll witness the remainder of this years record high snowpack levels and the high runoff that has been produced in Colorado and the rest of the Basin. Tomorrow has excitement in store as the research team is headed to Glenwood Springs to raft Glenwood Canyon and then off to meetings in Aspen in the afternoon.
Stay tuned in here as the research team will try and update this blog daily with different information regarding what we’re seeing, who we’re meeting with, and what we’ve learned about the intricate Colorado River Basin. The team will also be updating its Facebook page throughout the trip with photos and links to videos we’ve posted on our YouTube channel.
