it looks like they shored up the upper feature (and left a lot of loose material on top of it without having fundamentally changed much, maybe they raised that rockline a foot or so) and totally anhialated the bottom feature (its nearly flat now) although they put some big rocks on the river left side of it, and now there is a pile of rocks backing up the pool, with a little drop/outflow that doesnt look like it has the geometry to foster a very usable feature.. sorry no camera at the moment

yeah look at what they did to the second feature, i cant for the life of me figure out why. gary lacy must hate us

on the bright side, at 7 in the morning when the river is full of ice the first feature looks like a slushy machine, churning all the recirculating ice underwater

Gunnison County Public Works department, a prominant boater or two and some guy with a track-ho and a huge pile of rocks. Old-cat that got the ball rolling on this park is surely and sorely missed.
