Piedra Logs

Very dangerous log in Lone Pine rapid today.

There was a Pagosa raft company crew gonna cut some of the wood out this weekend but there are many logs on the banks and some burned trees just waiting to fall into the river from last summers fire.

We ran it again today and the log is still in place. It is too difficult to get to, so hopefully higher water will move it down to a safer place. Here is another picture from Saturday from above the log.

The logging crew that went through did an awesome job of getting rid of every major strainer in the river with the exception of lone pine. Thanks again for all of the hard work you guys put in this weekend.

With all of the cutting, there will be a lot of wood moving this week so make sure to scout every horizon line, but everything was good to go today.

Forgot to add the picture. I'm guessing flow was over 1000 today, so things will be shifting a lot as it keeps climbing.
