    Still dangerously high. Around 100cfs today. Best to cross when it's under 10cfs. If you're set on BCT ride out and back north from the first trailhead off the Bumblebee exit. No crossings necessary. Or check out the Copper Mt. Loop. Needs tires right now.

    A group of us rode the BCT from Mayer to Rock Springs on 3/16 when the gauge shows the flow was at ~450 cfs, and that was sketchy, but I can't imagine any issues (other than wet feet) when flow rate is below 100 cfs..

    Wow great pics. Thanks for sharing. We just went out to Browns. Saw 2 Diamondbacks and I think 2nd one took a shot at me. He was pissed. Also saw my 1st Gila Monster after 15 years of riding in AZ.

    Good to know and thanks for the correction. I apparently have bad info.
