I just got off the phone with Nancy at the West Fork ranger station and she reported that it was still there and had been moving somewhat, but that there was a channel around it.

Our group launches Sunday, so I'd love to hear any first hand knowledge of what to expect both with the log in Ladle and anything else out of the ordinary. As if anything is ordinary on the Selway...
Show me your OOOOOO face

I have a buddy who just came off too. He had a lengthy surf in one of the holes in the middle. He made his buddy go out on the log with a rope to pull them out if I am understanding what he told me. He said it was exciting but nothing life threatening as such. If i get a better report and some pics from them I will post up.

We took out on the 4th. The log was still in the middle of Ladle running parallel with the flow. I took my cat down the right side but the kayakers who did the center run easily avoided the log. There was also a log on the left side of the entry to what I think was Galloping Gertie. Easy to avoid, if you know it’s there.
