Attention Rafters/kayakers, there is a large tree down in the river just above Slaughterhouse Falls, making the river unnavigable. Raft companies will clear the tree when water level has dropped and safe to do so.
With the high flows again last night this tree has completely moved and is no longer a hazzard. It has moved below to the left of the boulder garden and appears to be far enough river left not to cause problems.
Is slaughterhouse raftable now? I have been waiting for the right water levels and now that it has hit I heard about the strainer. I have a brand new 12' Tributary that I would love to get on slaughterhouse with. Any info would be great. Also I paddled it once but never guided it. If anyone wants to run this within the next 2-4 days send me a message. I am a third year guide of Glenwood Springs and I normally run Shoshone. I can read the river well, but it doesn't hurt to follow someone on your first run.
