Interesting that the gauge calls this rapid lower runnable at 4.67. I ran it today at 4.9 and it
was scooting strong and fast.

I checked out this spot just a few days ago and it was a nice place to play around. The top rapid
was running good with runnable sections on both sides of the river. I checked with a employee of
the bar across the bridge and got permission to park in the back of the building. He warned me that
parking on the side of the road would get me towed, and that he has seen numerous cars get towed
whithn 30mins. of parking there so beware.
