Ogden Narrows Bobbing Log, Thurs, may 10th

Post by telekopter2 on Fri 11 May 2012, 2:51 am

Scouting the Narrows with a bud and saw a half sunken log, one end sunken to the river bottom, the other end bobbing up, in an eddy.

Log is anywhere from 4-6 feet in total length, best guess.

Once you see the waterfall off the high cliff river right, watch along river right as you descend the run. you'll see a big bare, dead tree, standing tall on the bank.

A yellow piece of surveyor's tape is tied to the branch of a seperate log i leaned up against that dead tree. This yellow surveryor's tape is probably about 20 or so feet above the level of the river so keep your eyes looking up.

50 or so feet past that tape, on river left, you'll see a drop of maybe 3 ft formed by a few boulders and an eddy after them.

In that eddy lies the bobbing log. Probably not a huge hazard but it's big enough, 4-6 ft long, that it would make for a surprise if you boofed the drop or eddied out there.

Anyone who sees it tomorrow friday & who knows the run and any names of holes, rapids, or landmarks better, please feel free to describe the location of the yellow tape or bobbing log better. thanx and happy boating.

I did not see any wood that would pose a hazard yesterday. I will look for that log today. Bill said he cut rebar out of the narrows, and that scares me way more than wood.
