Vallecito Wood

Heads up for wood in Vallecito. 6/29/11 PM run. Wood in the fifth drop - after the S-turn rapid which is usually an insignificant slide down the right flake has a large log jammed across the main drop - difficult to see run right - not all the way though -punji sticks way right.

Fuzzy Bunny - big log buried midway down the drop. Hard to see. You could boof over this but we portaged. Consequences looked very bad.

The log is at a slight angle to the water and looks to be a real bitch get out of there. We think to get it out you need to be on the river right shore to get the angle on it.

Boofaunt - wood. Way right line runs good. Charge left above million dollar eddy. Works out.

Everythink else was clean. Entrance falls was clean and nothing floating in the plunge pool. Level was around 2.4 (445 cfs) Wed. night.
