Downed trees on Boulder Creek below Foothills

I am new to mtn buzz, but wanted to report a potentially dangerous situation. This post pertains to the section of Boulder Creek between Foothills and 55th.

I floated Boulder Creek to 55th St about 3 weeks ago and there was the usual cottonwoods with very low branches blocking about half the creek at two separate bends.

I floated it yesterday (Sun, July 17) and there are two downed cottonwood trees completely blocking the creek. The required portage is over a heap of flood debris and trash. I use to love this section of the creek with its tight bends and Blue Herons, but now it is scary and ugly. I would recommend taking out at or before Foothills for the foreseeable future.

After Walnut parking lots, much closer to 55th St. This map shows the creek bends where the downed trees are located:
