Logs in Lower Clear Creek

So, Since I can't get away from town, I decided to run from top of screaming 1/4 mile to the playpark. TOO low, boat abuse. However, there are mulitple logs throughout the section that will come loose and come down stream as the water increases. everything from 2 foot branches to 15ft full branch trees. Burned palates, construction wood, logs, debris and so forth is in those sections. I counted over 15 logs alone, some in bad places.

SO keep an eye as the water comes up for strainers, and for debris coming down to the playpark as well.

Some of it could be pulled to the side, but many would need a chainsaw. I was soloing it, and stopping to try to pull logs alone seemed even more risky than what i was currently doing. Many are visible from the road or the old road around tunnel one. I didn't see anything large past the manky area below tunnel one. If I wasn't moving this week away from the Front Range, I would go back to clear with people.

So, if you get anyone to help after work one day before the water comes up, might be worth checking into.
