Roaring Fork Hazard Tree

Hello all, just wanted to pass this along. There is a hazard tree on the Roaring Fork located at the very North end of Aspen Glen on river right. I heard it was creating a strainer from rescuers today. Be safe.

Yes, I was part of the swift water rescue team. If you take the river right branch, when the river spits at Aspen GLENN, there is a tree down entire width of River.
With that said, these guys were not wearing any PFD s and are really lucky.
They were fishing.
Everyone survived. Wear your PFD while on the river.

Great evening float last night with Bald Eagles and a snowy white Sopris to top off my beer... That tree is obvious AF and it would take a real numbnuts to make it over that way. Happy cruising!

From the who asks if it is clear and obvious... No need to be an asshat about it. We're all here to have a safe and fun trip down the river.

I wasn't being an "asshat" buddy guy... Keep your panties on. More like clarifying that it's straightforward and identifiable for those who may be headed down that way in the future.
