Natalie and I ran Upper Death last weekend, and at the time everything seemed normal, but now, taking a closer look at the photos, it seems like there may be a new rock in there. Does anyone else have a photo of UD before the rockfall, for comparison? I was having a hard time visualizing the rapid because we ran it at such low water that it looked very different. I think maybe with another photo to compare to, we might be able to tell for sure.
Here's the photo from this weekend:
The rock that I suspect is the one in the lower right with a pink side facing downstream. It looked like it fit in at the time, but now it seems a little more chipped up than the rest, and I'm starting to wonder just how deep it normally is there.
And in case the photo doesn't work, check out the blog entry:
Leif and Natalie: Low water? I'll show YOU low water!
(The photo in question is near the end of the post.)
or the album of photos from that weekend: Picasa Web Albums - Leif - low water
(again, barrel photos are near the end.)
