Wood - Upper Rio Grande Box

This is the section below the Rio Grande Reservoir.

About half way into the canyon itself, there is a river wide strainer. The first photo is of a river wide hole - which is clean, but right above the drop with the river wide strainer. You have time to pull over, but I would worry that if you had a swimmer they would go into the strainer - the second photo.

There is another river wide strainer (log - jam like) not too far past this. Easy to see from upstream. In a kayak you can skirt it on far left - but you need to be in control.

What's it look like above the reservoir? Plannin a trip to run the upper section, the gorge above the reservoir. I was thinkin maybe the 1st or 2nd week of July, but might have to get down there sooner if flows are good?

The gauge at 30 Mile Bridge was between 800 and 900 cfs.
I didn't look at anything above the reservoir - sorry.
Absolutely beautiful day!
