Okay, maybe I'm missing something here, but it seems completely retarded to "close" the river because of a log. Almost every river and creek in the state has logs on them, especially on more difficult runs, and its usually pretty simple to portage. On difficult rivers there are usually just as many deadly places formed by rock and water as there are by logs, so closing the river doesn't really seem to be making anything safer. I'd be much more concerned about flipping and hitting my head in screaming 1/4 mile, or by getting recirced to death in that dam drop than I am about missing an eddy above a tree. Further more, closing the river only teaches the idiots that whenever something is dangerous that someone will disallow them from getting hurt, rather than letting those same people figure out what is dangerous and what isn't through good decision making or natural selection or whatever. Place a warning sign, but don't close the river! Retarded. TIIMMMAAAAYYYYY!
