A while ago (mid Jan) I saw tracks on the Yampa and asked locals if they had ever skied the Yampa at all - the answer was negative.
I started planning and finding a time to do it and then read your article in the Pilot and Today

 
Subsequently
The first little checkout revealed surface water at Walton Pond but on Feb 19th we did the section from Chuck Lewis State Wildlife Park to 5th Street Bridge and then on Feb 21st from Phippsburg to Stagecoach Dam Marina
 
The last section revealed coyote, 3 bald eagles many geese and innumerable switchbacks - a great day out.
