Went tearing out of my tent at spanish bottom one time, thought the apocalypse had come, was just in time to see the dust settling from tons of rocks that let loose from the doll house.
Saw some other big rock falls on the river, that was a crazy trip.
Will never again sing "tear down the wall" before running cataract.

Hubby and I were nearly crushed by rockfall on our honeymoon during a portage. Refrigerator size rock let loose from 500' up, knocked loose tons of rock from the talus slope, and cratered in the trail were I had been standing before bouncing into the river. I didn't think I could run that fast. We saw a 2-3 foot diameter rock miss our raft by inches. We stopped running in between two talus slopes that were both moving lots of rock. Nothing like starting a partnership by cheating death.

Main fork of the Salmon 2014, the crew had just finished the pre-dinner BS session on this boat and were up in the kitchen.

My first trip down the Middle Fork we had the misfortune to camp at Tumble Creek. In the dark of the night a rockfall came through camp and demolished our kitchen. Stoves, tables, pots, etc, were all carried away and crushed. Amazingly, none of the tents were hit. Several people got ticks on them there as well. Later I learned that people call the place "Stumble Creek" due the poor footing. Avoid that camp my friends.
