Chainsaw season! Vallecito is Clean.
Dont forget to go and clean your local runs of wood this fall, a few guys with chainsaws can get a lot done. Just make sure you cut it small enough so that spring melt will take it through the canyon without getting hung up elswhere! I am in the Durango area and cut out the logs in Vallecito this week. Boufant is clean, no wood across the river. Fuzzy, someone else cut on this log and it seems to be out of the way. Million Dollar Eddy rapid is clean, this log was way out of the water at reasonable flows. But at 2.5 I got hung up on it, so I cut that shit out. Wood and strainers are a scary thing so lets cut em up before we lose more of our friends to hazards that can be removed with a little chainsawing in the offseason. Other Durango paddlers, am I missing any wood in our area, what else needs a flossing.
