Deso trip report

Just got off Deso. Launched July 3, took out July 9. Great trip.

Good flows, 4200 cfs at take out. Upper section is a lake (hope for no wind) but flows picked up after day 2. Rapids are fun and not too boney.

Bugs not too bad. Only needed a head net at the put-in. After launch we were able to find bug free camps on sand bars. Camps with lots of brush are still buggy.

Note: Rangers report some bear activity and advice extra precautions. Be aware that scented lotions, sunscreens and body products are just as yummy to a bear as food. Do you really want to be smelling like a great big coconut candy bar?
