Rafter missing in Gore

Here is the news link: 19-year-old man missing near Gore Canyon | 9news.com

I didn't think any camping would be permitted in this area. Isn't it a know Ranch that we all tread lightly on. Am I wrong?

That's a weird spot, the beach on river left is a scree field and not large enough to lose sight of a friend. The area on river right is train tracks.

According to the article they were rafting and camped near applesauce. Sounds like the Colorado river sirens were signing their midnight song again...

He has passed. They found him at the bottom of the eddy below a cliff. He was a local kid who went to school here at Battle Mountain High and sadly friends with Logan Jaurnigg. Tough streak for this valley!
