New Strainer on Slaughterhouse

New wood has fallen across the Roaring Fork 1/2 mile below the Slaughterhouse put-in. It is a large cottonwood, river-wide. This is just above the calm stretch preceeding Slaughterhouse Falls.

More info from pitkinalert.org

Attention Rafters/kayakers, there is a large tree down in the river just above Slaughterhouse Falls, making the river unnavigable. Raft companies will clear the tree when water level has dropped and safe to do so.

Correction: it's a spruce. Wouldn't want anyone to think I don't know my dendrology.

With the high flows again last night this tree has completely moved and is no longer a hazzard. It has moved below to the left of the boulder garden and appears to be far enough river left not to cause problems.

There was also a log across most of the river below the bridge. You could pass it on the far left yesterday. It too may have moved.

Have run it in a cataraft (oar rig) up to 1100 and the bridge is not a problem.
