Verde River Below Bartlett - Shuttle and Rig

Flow below Lake Bartlett was 1070 CFS making for an excellent float. The agreed upon meeting spot was the intersection of E Rio Verde Dr and N Forest Rd. The gear transfer and out-vehicle drop off did not take long. The 40 shuttle miles takes a little over an hour each way which is an effort for 8-9 river miles. Although touchy, the low-clearance van made it to the launch site. Would not be able to say the same for the take-out. While rigging, entertainment was provided by these folk and their rescue vehicle. The view upriver from the campground put-in.
