Tree in Eagle to Gypsum run

There is a Tree across the entire river closer to Gypsum about a half a mile below the big red barn/ranch on river right (Strawberry Fields). The best portage seems to be river right of the tree. You can scrap around it in a kayak but with a raft you will have to drag/carry your boat about 20 feet around the tree. It is on a straightaway and there is a large gravel bed on river left above the hazard. Be careful out there and enjoy.

You can sneak by it on the Right

Last week when I was down there it looks like someone cut some of the end off and put an Orange cone on it. It seems easier to get around and now with more water it should be even better. Just be heads up.
