You could see tires, a book case or anything else in there. One day I saw a kayak floating downstream with no paddler. I don't know who takes the trouble to throw this jetsam in the river. That is bad enough. The neglect of natural debris has not been cleaned up in a decade. Fallen trees make natural dams all the way down. Maybe the county decided that au naturel was the preferred ecological avenue.
