I guess I'll have to throw this video in from last April.



My wife took that while we exited the drainage after the water had come up. The funny thing is that the day before Todd (aka KTM_Guy) and his wife stopped by our camp for a bit and they took the same video on the way out.

That camp, by the way, is my favorite in the four-corners country. Pictographs, near-by ruins, peregrines, and rattlers. A perfect camp.

Perfect. :thumbsup:

Foamies do it just fine and they are naturally buoyant.

OMG, that is a great pic.

Can you share where-abouts this is? Is this your private property? Public land?

It's one of my favorite camps. Lots of Ancestral Puebloan (AKA Anasazi) ruins within hiking distance. There are pictographs right there on the rocks left thousands of years ago --I'm sure it was someone else's favorite camp too. The last time we were there, a rattler showed himself and then slithered back into the rocks. Behind where I took the photo, there's the nest of the fastest animal on earth --the peregrine falcon.

It's our public land. But you'll just have to find it. I'm so sorry about that...I hope you understand.

:frightened:
