River Hazard in Browns Canyon

Just received this notice from a friend

All,



A strainer has been reported in Widow Maker Rapid in Browns Canyon. It is on the divider rock just below the Toilet Bowl. The branch is below water line (at this level) on the right channel and is above water line and extending about half way across the left channel. AHRA will attempt to deal with this hazard as soon as we can. Any further information regarding this strainer such as movement or photos should be sent to me at; stew.pappenfort@state.co.us





Thanks,

Stew Pappenfort

The latest

Cleared River Hazard in Brown's Canyon




AHRA SUA Contractors,



The obstruction (log strainer) in Widow Maker Rapid has been cleared by AHRA Rangers. The very far left channel still has part of the log, but it is clean of its extending branches.



Have a safe weekend,

Rope Above Twin Falls below Sidel's

This was reported to me in regards to my lost throw bag:

"FYI: there was a red thowbag with yellow rope on river left just above Twin Falls last night (06/08/08 ~5:30pm). It appeared that the rope was deployed as the bag was caught in a mild current a few feet from the shore. The bag and rope did not appear to be a significant safety concern in its current position."
