Flows stay pretty steady at the falls even when they fluctuate down below. It's pretty much good until it's low for the slate.

Sounds like you could drive it before, but this link says Mirror Lake Highway is officially open as of tomorrow:

Guardsmans Pass opening in "late July" - never heard of such a late opening, have you?

We don't normally run that last falls. 2 broken backs in the last few years, rocks in the pool, so not surprising your boat broke. We just take out at the lip of it on the left after the last slide. Also on the lower stretches we mainly just run the lower gorge, putting in above the big roadside slide, as it is more quality than the upper stretches. It's work enough just keeping that lower gorge clean.

There were 3 logs in the 2nd Box, a couple weeks ago, just above the first gorge pullout. Looked hard to stop above them; needs a come-a-long..
Spectacular looking gorge~
