I am having trouble pulling something from the archives using the search function, so thought I would be lazy and see if I could get some comments on the Lowe River into Valdez.
All my written material on the river is dated prior to 2010, when there was catatrophic flooding and the road through Keystone Canyon washed out. Prior to 2010, the river was rated at a modest class III mainly due to some specific tricky points. It is my understanding that a considerable amout of rock was poured onto the the river bank during the course of rebuilding the road, and I image the character of the river could be significantly different that before. I cannot find any recent accounts of the river, what it's rated, specific tricky corners and such.
We'll have to see if the snow avalanch this winter will have a meaningful impact on the topography, but wondering if folks on the forum can give me a little more contemporary onfo on the run?
