Watch Out: Big Wood in the Ark downstream of Florence.

There are some monster cottonwoods floating down the Ark right now. I saw two today which were at least 60 feet long with 3 foot diameter trunks. One was basically a log with some smaller branches projecting off of it and the other was a full blown live tree, same size. They were surrounded by smaller pieces of drift wood.

I don't know if a bank collapsed somewhere or what, but there is some big stuff moving downriver.

My buddy needs a boat but sounds like he could just catch one of these 'monster pulverizers' for a joyride. What section btw?

This was in Portland (just east of Florence), but I am quite sure they came from somewhere upstream. I sometimes get out on the river at the Florence River Park and practice, so these things gave me some pause.

TT, I thought it might just be you (big wood) out on the river for a run. My bad
