Last time we set up the kitchen on the tip on the island, but nature has since added a flow separator

12:59pm launch. Another leisurely start

Marblemount Bridge takeout. 2:01pm. After not having rafted for 19 months, I find myself surprisingly exhausted and dehydrated 😎

USGS Flow at 04/17/2021 12:00 PDT 3,940 CFS 83.56' 5.9C (42.6F). When we did our Sept. 2019 trip the water was a lot warmer - 53.8F
