Is there any actual "shit creek"?

just out of curiosity, does anyone know of a stream, creek or river actually named "shit" somewhere in the Rocky Mountains?

not trolling, I'm honestly interested to know

Rio Cacahuano was 1st D 'd last September. That translates to Batshit Creek (river) ..checkout Mayan White Water. click rivers then pick Chiapas, while there take note of how many runs there are in a state less than a third the size of Colorado...check out the photos of the Santo Domingo,upr. Jatate, and others.

Not in the Rockies either, but Alabama Whitewater rates water quality of runs by number of chickens -3 chickens equal bad -as there are large commercial poultry operations (eg Tyson) Also was reading about a run that sounded cool.until they mentioned that it drains hog farms

How about the outflow from the treatment plant right below Smelter Rapid on the Animas. They say it's cleaner than the river water but it sure smells like a shit creek.

SHITIKE Creek in Oregon

Shitike Creek - Oregon - Map and Area Photos

Flows through the town of Warm Springs on the Reservation.
Starts up by Mt Jefferson.
in Jefferson County, Oregon, USA.
Latitude: 44.76222 : Longitude: -121.22778

Supposedly its from a local Indian name but we all know Ike took a dump upstream.
No one has ever run it for some reason.

Fugitive Gunner Bailey allegedly drove a stolen pickup into Shitike Creek in Warm Springs, and fled on foot.
I'm thinking I know what his line to the judge was.
Do you see a paddle?

South Fork of the Coeur d' Alene was known as Shit creek for years and labeled that way on old maps. All the locals still call it shit creek. Now its a super fund site.
