6/21/17 New log spanning left channel of second to last island before the Whitney Bridge take-out.
This island is marked with lots of logs on the upstream end which have been there for years. Right
channel is clear. This island is adjacent to a roadside public access with chain-link fence beyond
the shoulder parking. You can scout the right channel from this access while shuttling. If you know
where to look, you can see the log at the bottom of the left channel from this access. At 1100cfs,
we paddled and scraped over the log.

Reported by King County: Yo-Yo stretch of Green River near Flaming Geyser State Park King County
has identified a spanning log on a stretch of the Green River within Flaming Geyser State Park
which may pose a hazard to recreational boaters. The recently fallen cottonwood tree lies partially
submerged and completely spans the channel approximately 500 feet downstream from the put-in
location known to boaters as the Yo-Yo stretch that runs from Flaming Geyser State Park to the
Whitney Bridge (212 Way Southeast) and 300 feet north of the intersection of Flaming Geyser Road
and the service road leading to the park ranger station. Warning signs (see bottom photo) have been
posted at two locations upstream from the log that directs boaters to exit the river. Boaters
should note there is a lower put-in location in the park downstream of the log that avoids the
fallen tree hazard. See map below.
