Log in Boulder Garden on Foxton

We just ran Foxton this evening (7/21) and there is a log spanning from river
center to far river right above the last drop in the boulder garden. At the time
(~5pm probably 400cfs judging from the gauge) it was right at water level and
a dark color so it blended in nicely.

From talking with people who have boated this section regularly, this is blocking
the normal line.

Specifically, the log is at the start of this rapid, where you move to river right
before making a hard left to get back to far river left to drop the chute between
one of the large boulders and the shoreline. The drop I'm talking about is pictured
in this photo for those confused by my description.

The log is located maybe 50 yards upstream from the drop shown.

The normal line can still be run, but you must eddy out behind the first small rock
(which the log is pinned behind) and then go right around the next two big
boulders, or hit the slot between the first two boulders.
