Three-Way Rapid - Poudre
Hi all -
Recent gully-washers from the High Park burn area have made several significant changes to the Poudre. A number of side-streams have pushed rock and sand into the river, narrowing the channel.
This video pan is of is the former Three-Way (currently "No-Frickin'-Way"). A new wash on Friday has pushed many logs out and downriver (to cause new problems!), Other big restrictions are at Steven's Gulch and above Tunnel Rapid where side streams have pushed mud and rock into at least half of the channel.
It's still a mystery as to how these areas will shake out by spring! The right side of Three-Way could become the "cheat" or a nasty rock garden!

Be careful out there!
