A pine tree has fallen over the river just after a Grade 3 rapid. There's about 1 metre clear between the tip 0f the tree and the rock cliff you can paddle thru but it looks like an accident waiting to happen.
The raft guy we met there said it fell about 2 weeks ago & his boss keeps meaning to do something about it....
He reckons the rafts are going over the top of the tree at risk of puncture (and life, I say).
Unsure which rapid at present so just be careful.
