You may have heard, we had a significant rain storm over the High Park Burn Area yesterday. It washed a significant amount of water, mud, logs and other debris into the Riv out of the Stove Prairie area.
This caused a spike in flows that easily topped 3.0 on the Rock (anecdotal from markers in my yard and on Smith Bridge). It also swept the logs out of 3-Way (3 Rock) Rapid. I have not put eyes on this yet, but I have been informed by a trusted source that all but one log have been swept downstream and the Rapid is now run-able. I will head up and take pics later.
What this does mean is… there are more than a dozen sizable logs downstream from 3 Way!! I have two of them atop boulders in my back yard alone!! So, late season Boaters- beware of new strainers and bridges.
Oh yeah, it also washed out the last cattle guard on Stove Prairie Rd (1/4 mile south of 14), which is now impassable until possibly as late as Monday. Will broadcast pics of 3-Way later today.
