The locals have designated the parking lot underneath the bridge for highway 33/48 as a shooting
range. When paddling you are coming around a corner at that point.....be careful.

My girlfriend and i rand this at 2.9 too low although the twin giants were still runnable. Stay
left on this rapid as the hydraulic to the right will hold you then spit you under the second large
boulder, there is also a log pinned under the same boulder. Would be very fun about a foot higher.
