Tree in Bailey - serious haz
There is a 100% river wide tree that has fallen between deer creek and mystery eddy. It doesn't necessarily sneak up on you but with lower (normal) water it will be a mandatory portage on river left.
Small log in the notch but I think it's been there since last year. Kind of sketch if you blow the line.
Otherwise the run is clean. The second barb wire fence is gone now!!
FYI - the flow is estimated to be 150 higher than the grant gauge right now. The feeder creeks are CRANKING. Probably 650 Cfs tonight. The other paddling group agreed the river was a step up from juicy or "padded out". Be careful and don't take any newbies right now. You must know your lines and swimming could prove costly or even tragic. I knew this evening would be a long trip when the bridge at the dream house almost takes your head off. There was water at first falls coming in from the right side of the drop overtaking the lip of the drop. The boof flake in supermax was submerged.

History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.
