Topic: 2 new landslides and logs
|Posted: Apr 29, 2012Post Subject: 2 new landslides and logs
|So, a crew of us did the run on the 28th of April 2012 with 6' on the USGS gauge. As the subject line states there are a couple of new landslides due to recent heavy rains. The first one is significant and looks as if it could have briefly dammed up the river leaving behind several large trees all the way across. It is easily seen from up stream and is located about a .5-.75 miles below the paradise gorge. Eddy and portage on the left. The Eddies are small (2 at a time to be safe) but easily negotiated at the flow we had. The second slide is smaller and located roughly .5-.75 miles down from the cabins. It can be negotiated on the left going around a tree. |
Also, it may be worth mentioning that we portaged the upper part of the island rappid on the right. Due to visibility and some possible rocks shifting in the left line for the regular portage. We still ferried left for the double boof.
The rest of the run has its usual portages and is very fun!
