River Wide Tree down on Lake Fork of the Gunnison

As of Saturday 25th there is a large tree from bank to bank just down from Red Bridge Campground put-in. It was right at water surface level yesterday @ 950cfs. The rest of the run was clear of any other major hazards.

Yes. There was an eddy just on the otherside of the tree. Short steep scramble down the bank. Not sure where a raft could put in beyond the tree.

Tree in the Lake Fork of the Gunnison 6-24-16

Within the first mile of the Red Bridge to Gateview run on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison is a huge fresh-fallen pine tree all the way across the river. It is visible from above and not hard for kayakers to avoid (via eddy and portage) but rafters may find this sketchy.
