Poudre Wood Update: 5/10/17
I rowed Stevens Down yesterday, May 10th, it was just shy of 3ft. There is some wood to note.
A couple hundred yards downstream of the Mish is a down tree river left crossing halfway. It is obvious and easily avoidable.
About a quarter mile upriver of Poudre Park Picnic Area there is a down tree in the right channel on river left. It is not a hazard now but with a bit more water it could become a channel wide strainer.
**Just about Bridges Put In in that last rapid there is a log a little left of center between two rocks maybe five feet wide that is NOT obvious until you get close. It seems wedged in there pretty well and at current levels could very well pin a hard boat and it has a few small branches pointing directly upstream that might be able to puncture rubber. It is probably visible from BPI.**
It also seems to me that between the tunnel and sonic boom the left channel has more water going through it than last season.
I'm sitting in my shared office and something has been smelling rancid. Turns out stepped in dog shit.
My student debt could buy a house, grad school made me lose my vision and turned my hair gray, and I have no useful life skills... but I have a garage full of sweet boats so its okay.
