puncture on blue
There's been a pine tree across the Blue, right before the canyon and the rapids, all year and rafts have been able to underneath in one spot. The water is now getting high enough to make it a problem. Last night I punctured the rear tube on my raft on one of the down hanging broken branches. Draging the raft up the hill to the highway was a bitch. There is a small channel on river left that offers the chance to avoid it at these flows, and I highly recommend it. I am surprised that none of the local rafting companies, or the forest service haven't yet removed it. Peace...
