Bailey Wood above Deer Creek

Heads up on the tree that has been hanging above Deer Creek for at least the past year.

This tree is significantly closer to the water between my runs of July 22 and yesterday, August 20, 2017. It was easy to avoid in July, but hit my head on the branches with my helmet. It's right above the scout eddy in the swift water. It's just a matter of time before it's a big issue.

ODDS: One out of three avoided the branches.

Just an update to this thread that the snag has been removed! Thanks to those that helped remove the tree. We observed one section of the tree moved high and dry in the river right eddy below the first boof. Another section of the tree is caught in rocks on river right in the middle of the rapid and looks like it will stay at these low flows, but could move at higher flows.
