Topic: Wood on Forks of the Kern starting at Four-Mile
|Posted: May 30, 2014Post Subject: Wood on Forks of the Kern starting at Four-Mile
|As of May 29, 2014 there is a fair bit of wood that has fallen into the Forks run starting at Four-Mile rapid (four miles up from the Johnsondale Bridge, below Vortex but above Westwall). Looks like it came down in a little landslide or something.|
Four-Mile was clean down the middle but wood was in play on the left. More wood was scattered down the run but most of it was visible and out of play. The left exit to Westwall had a good size tree in it that posed a serious hazard (we ran the far right at the bottom). All this wood could definitely move around if flows ever rise again (like next season if El Nino hits), so keep your eyes open.
