Definitely a great Rogue whitewater tradition. I have installed a few myself over the years. Pumpkin spotting contests are good fun too. Wonderful time to be on the Rogue.

Looks like you had an awesome trip despite the rain. How many days were you on the water?
Started seeing pumpkins in Sept. this year down there and my 5 year old son was stoked to see about 40 on and early Oct. run. Have not personally taken a side on this one but I do know the managing agency is putting out the word to stop leaving items in the canyon, i.e. stuffed animals, pumpkins, etc.

Hey Sol - yeah great trip.
We were on the water for 3 days, it really only rained the last night at HMB, but it was puring wwhen we got to the put in at 4pm the night before we launched. So what's a little rain, eh? Otherwise it was cloudy and moist. A nice relief from dry chapped Nevada.

Your comment about the managing agencies is interesting, had not thought about that, but what harm does a little pumkin do? After all some were partially eaten and will probably all get flushed out to sea in the first high water event. They certainly don't hurt the enviroment like the tires I saw at HMB, the inevitable fishing line that must be in there and god knows what else.
I'll probably get flamed for saying that.
As much as I like the "pristine" nature experience as much as most people and don't condone trashing places I have no issue with bio-degradable ornamentations.

I'd give extra kudos who the person that climbed up on the pilot rock in Blossom to add a pumpkin. It was up there by October 20.
