All along our float trip there was this type of debris. Some of it, which I guess I did not find interesting enough to photograph, was in the water. According to our guide, this stuff is left where it is. Something will be done if there are fallen trees in the river that are a hazard, ie. can’t be seen. My guess is they do it this way because 1) it is natural – this is the way things are- and 2) the cost of trying to get rid of this stuff would be prohibitive.  So here we have Snake River debris.

    I think you should do the trip all over again and get a close up of the debris!

    At least this debris is not the trashy human leave-behinds. And what about that cloud debris in the sky messing with our view of the Grand Tetons?

    I think the debris adds to the natural beauty of this area…love the “untouched” look!

    With that gorgeous backdrop, who would notice a few sticks by the river? 😉
