Barbed Wire Across Rio Grande Above Lobatos Bridge
WARNING! - In the Lasauses section of the Rio Grande we found 2 strands of barbed wire stretched across the full width of the river at approximately MP 8, about 4 miles upstream from the Lobatos Bridge. There are no markings of any kind (fence posts, flagging, etc.) on this wire so it's extremely difficult to see.
Over Memorial Weekend (at 400 cfs) we were lucky enough to notice it as we floated into it, but a later group was not so lucky and someone had a nasty head injury.
It's also worth noting that there are a couple of places upstream from there where landowners have placed posts in mid-river islands and stretched wire to river left.
