I could do it taday after 4 or so if there are a few others to help. I need 1-2 people to help rope and another to keep Riley ( 3 year old boy)from trying to help too much. I can check back her around 4, or call me. 720-298-2242

I'll be up there today around 5:30-5:45.
Sorry though, my first prior is to look for my dry bag before it gets too dark. It has my cell, watch and digital camera. Yikes!

Hopefully I'll find it in an eddie right off the bat and would be more than happy to run up and help pull that moster tree out. Don't have much for ropes or saws but always willing to get wet.

See you guys up there.

BTW - I'm always looking for boaters to run front range creeks, class IV preferred.

I'm meeting someone at elephant rock at 5pm to go run Alto or BC depending on BC's level. If someone wants to meet before then to extract the tree call me and if anyone wants to join us please do, I'll be in a maroon truck with a yellow disco in the back.

Thanks to everyone who came and helped out this evening. The river wide tree was just below the confluence of four mile creek. removing it was a little more than we were up for , but a very safe passage now exists. This tree WILL move with future (not this year) high water, unless it gets more attention. If someone else is concerned I would be happy to help remove the whole thing later this summer, as long as there are plenty of volunteers to move the debris.

Happy boating, be safe.

Thanks you guys. I'd be up for removing the whole thing. Dont have much equipment but always willing to lend some elbow grease.

Actually, passed under that tree tonight. I did the run because I am still looking for that damn dry bag. I learned that below 100 cfs, upper boulder creek goes from rowdy III to class V pin fest.

all that and still no dry bag.

Does this condom make me look fat?
