Bailey - Wood?

Might get a chance to get off work early and go rafting down Bailey this afternoon and was wondering where trees are down across the river currently?

Haven't been down in a couple years so if anybody is heading that way, tagging along would be apreciated (with cold beer ).

There is a river-wide tree down between supermax and deer creek; maybe 2/3 of the way between the two. Sitting in a kayak, the trunk is well above head-height, but it has some branches that trail down to within a foot of the water or so. A number of them have been broken off on the left-hand side to allow for easy passage in a kayak; you could probably sneak a raft under it as well, but it might be tight.

A few other trees down before 4 Falls, but nothing too tough to get around.

That wood has been there as long as I've been running bailey. Someone cut all the branches off a few years back so it's really not an issue. You used to have to sneak between two branches but still was no big deal. Good to know if you've never done it anyway.

right after supermax around the corner from the tampax putin, there's a big tree on river right. nasty branches. it's easy to get around to the left but if you're not paying attention (like if you just got smeared in the wall hole above it) it could be bad.
