Bailey Wood Update from 6/20/15
Wood update from Saturday June 20th:
I don't know all the names of the rapids, but I'll do my best here...
The wood situation was mostly changed from the last post a week ago and here is what we found:
There is a log blocking the left exit at the bottom of 4 Falls. I imagine people wouldn't want to take that line anyways and will see the log while scouting.
We did not see any wood between 4 Falls and Supermax.
There is a log coming from the right shore at the top of Supermax that is mostly out of play and you will see while scouting.
Between Supermax and Deer Creek there was some potentially nasty wood. Looking at the rapid names in American Whitewater, I guess that it is in a rapid EITHER called "Trash Can" or "Big Flake o Rock." It's basically the last rapid of note before the rock formation that alerts you it's time to scout Deer Creek. The wood is at the top of the rapid. There were 3 logs blocking the right entrance to this rapid. We were able to enter far left, then ferry behind some boulders back to the main channel for the rest of the rapid.
The tree fell in on the approach to Deer Creek, but you can easily get left of it.
Then, we had 3 more logs in the rapids below Deer Creek. The first 2 logs are obvious--you can easily see them and get around them.
The last one was the log in Mystery eddy. It is a GIANT rectangular beam and probably isn't moving anytime soon. We were able to run right of it but had to boof over a fairly big hole. I would recommend scouting this one and/or just running the left sneak channel (which was flowing at 750 on gauge).
I hope this helps! Happy paddling.
