Lost boat in Deso/Gray
Embarrassed to admit it, but I lost a ducky in Deso. I almost got pinned against the rocks river left in Steer Ridge rapid. I swam free, but the ducky did not follow. I spent and hour trying to dislodge the boat from its predicament and only succeeded in starting to rip the end of it off. I felt it was better to count my lucky stars and hope someone finds it in one piece when the river comes down. The boat in question is a red Sevylor X-K1 - Permit attached to it is #881. Boat was pinned on 7/12/14. if you find it I'll be happy to reward you for return.
On another angle - We had minimal bugs. We saw no bears, but saw fresh tracks and scat. While camped at Lion Hollow we saw a full size Bison Bull run up the trail for 1/2 mile - No we were not hallucinating! Where the heck did that come from!
Fantastic trip! Super fun water level for the kids. Great weather. Flash floods delayed our shuttle at Sand Wash, but it showed up just as we got to the ramp. Perfect timing. Our Last night the river came up 16 inches and turned red brown and full of logs from a flood just up river.
Thanks for the help and be safe out there!
