Update blockage but good trip

My Report:

So there has not been an update about this place is some time. So, I loaded up the wife and kids (3years and 8 years of age) and went exploring. Completely beautiful run for about 5 miles lol. At the 5 mile there is a very tight spot that takes some quick maneuvering but passable. a little further down, there is a complete river blockage. took my breath away knowing I have young ones in tow. so we pulled over and I scouted it out. the blockage goes for about 100 feet. with NO WAY over it. Luckily there was a path cut to the right that went completely around it. it was large enough for my 14.5 canoe carried by 2 people. the kids seemed to get a kick out of watching me sweat for a bit. But, we got back on the move again. The river was high and the current moved us along to the point were very little paddling was needed. Over all a good trip
