river wide tree in the whakataiki

At low flows this is less of a hazard (id say below 1500mm) on the akatarawa guage and there may be a sneak through the middle but at high flows like we paddled in the wake of this last weather bomb (1700+) on the akatarawa guage this poses a compulsory portage.
it is about half way down between the ford and the confluence with the main whakataiki river. no other new hazards to mention from yesterdays run.

safe paddleing
