This is now a river wide strainer at the bottom of Entrance exam... impassable, since new wood is now getting caught in the strainer

Four large strainers between Stein Park and Slaughterhouse falls. The second is a deadly river-wide spruce at the tail waves of Entrance Exam. No word or easy scout of more wood below the falls.

Any idea of whether the strainers will flush with more water or is a cleaning mission going to be required?

Crews from a couple commercial operators are gearing up to do some removal, probably Thursday morning.

according to pitkin county open space and trails, they will not remove trees, nor give permission for anyone else to.

would you expect anything less from pitkin county?
