log in North Saint Vrain-Shelly's Cottages Run

As of July 9th 2009 there is an almost river wide log blocking all but a boat wide chute on the left. This is located a short ways past the promanant spillway in the lower section of the run above the Apple Valley Bridge. We were able to paddle around it but it could be really bad if someone ran into this. I gave it a tug as I went by to see if I could pull it off and it was on there very well.

The water is dropping fast. It was bony but we had a pretty good time on the rest of the run.

Yes, I am sure with a little effort it could be removed.

Don't think it's at a runable level. I might be able to swing by and winch out the log though.

Glenn, sounds like the one we removed from above the spillway early in the season. I'm game to move it again. Z-Drag this time though!

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing malozzi. Not that it stopped us before, but the low level might keep me from going back right now.

This is true. I guess we can give it a go, and dick around in the play park.
