Buzz Picture

Ok - someone who is in the know needs to explain this to me. I was moving around on the buzz and noticed the picture at the top of the screen from Mountain Buzz. Anyone think of a good reason you would beach your boat on a rock with a beach like that (yellow raft in foreground)?

See below.

Come to think of it - those other boats are WAAAAY up the beach as well. Kind of an odd picture unless there's something I don't know about this specific site/river.

same thing with hells canyon, at night you push it out as far as you can in the eddy and the next morning it still isn't even close to the water... makes you pay attention to what is under your boat at night.

Yep. We had a 22' snout rig 100% beached one morning. Rookies. Thing was, the snout driver was a long time GC guide. He got a lot of shit for that. You gotta park in deep water.

The better question is, how did that make the cut for a banner pic.

I've seen lots of boats beached - but much fewer wind up getting lodged on top of rock like that. I'm guessing that boat (the yellow one) was tied up and was above the rock. When the water dropped and the raft couldn't float out (tied up), it just wound up on the rock.
