Vallecito Wood update 4/7/12

Fuzzy bunny still has that log in it...we could rally after work wednesday 4/11/12 if someone could show us exactly where to hike down, we have all the gear needed to do it.

we REMOVED the portion of the log that was blocking the left entrance to BOOFAUNT. We ran it but I recommend a scout as there is still a log just above head height that you need to go under, at higher flows this may be a no go. Also the log that we cut needs more work as we are pretty sure a high flow will send it down to ?.

To be clear there are 2 BIG logs in Boofaunt and one may flush unless we get it cut some more so make sure you see both trees there or be heads up later.

pics to follow

So whats the potential with this partial log? How big? Where did ya leave it? How much flow is it going to take to be touched/ shifted? Thanks for the work but just curious where this is gonna go

We ran last night, only log in bouffant I saw was 7-10ft above river height. Might have been one in there but i missed it which means you'll be fine. Wishing the bunny was in.

Warren, the potential for you, or others to remove the other two logs is there for sure. The one above the river is about 30' long 16" diameter on the big side.

The piece we removed has been pulled above the high water mark.

The partial log that may flush is 20' about 16" in diameter and is right next to the first boof. I have no idea where it will end up and no founded estimate on what it will take to move it but I am guessing a 2.5 or 3.0 flush may get it moving.

Just be heads up that there are 2 trees still in Boofaunt (Cphilli I think you may have not noticed the one that was cut to open up the first boof), one out of the way on your right as you make the first boof and the one on top of it that you go under.
