Wow, even deeper then I remembered...

Great wheeling with the Durango gang!

Would be fun to do a club double overnighter down that way and have you local folks lead...

It wasn't as deep as it looks in the pic....that's just the North Shore/Pipeline style breaker he's pushing up.

He was moving pretty well. That is a fun feature for sure.

I am going to have to toss a snorkel on here sooner then later..

So does everyone have to cross the Dolores at that water level, or is there a bridge/shallower crossing spot?

No, after finding the right place, I did find water in my air cleaner. This is the first of two crossings and the other is typically 8-10" deeper and I was not interested in attempting that one going slow and finding the right way. So I made the choice to allow a few people the chance to experience a good almost safe way to have the chance to see how they did. Besides me, we had 3 others play in the water with Me spotting with a radio.
This crossing is typically lower in the fall and the other crossing is a breeze with lower water.
Hope that answers your question Matt.

The Delores River crossing is an added feature. A dirt road runs off to the left of the county road and then rejoins the county road a ways down. so you can go look at the river and even camp near it, where you cross, as we did. So you can play and then get back on the county road and continue on the Kokopelli.

I bet fall and dead of winter are the best time to cross it, I have in September and it was up to top of our tires at the deapest point, mostly just mid wheel.

BTW, My new Avatar is the bomb! Check out my rack!!
