Wood Alert, Eleven Mile Canyon

Went down on 5/29, and beware of the log almost all the way across the river below one of the more technical rapids. Pictures of the wood at the bottom and the entrance to the rapid attached. Rapid enters with a big house rock on the left, with a thread the needle move below.

To avoid wood at the bottom, go far river right. Not a problem if you style the rapid, but swimmers/upside down boaters beware.

We didn't see any other significant wood hazards for alert boaters.

Also be warned that at 330 cfs the river was notably more pushy than it was at 300.
