River Wood Hazards

Nisqually - McKenna to Yelm Hydro Plant

Shanna Gachen

4/23/16, 830 cfs. Rapid after Big Kahuna, I believe it's Little Kahuna. Also marked by a huge right hand cliff wall just before the rapid. There was always a car in the water on river left, it looks like the car has moved downstream and a portion of it is still on the left bank, but the actual frame of the car is now in the center of the rapid. Very dangerous as it's the frame and a water craft could accidentally blunder into it, especially if the water was just a little higher it would be hard to see. Best to stay as close to the right bank as possible even though there would be larger rocks / pourovers on the right to contend with.
