For those of you that are planning on hunting the San Juan NF area......It looks like the monsoons have really started.

For the past week of so we have had rain almost every afternoon/evening. It is a welcome change to the hot, dry early summer/late spring we had. Temps are back to near normal, hope it continues. Only time will tell. All of the irrigation impoundments are really low as the farmers are using every last drop they can get...me included. Last week I was in the upper Dolores River (river itself is really low)drainage and it looked like spring. Lots of grass and wildflowers. (didn't have my camera!!) I am going to try to get back up there again next week as I have a M/L elk tag in that area.

Will keep you posted on conditions.
