It's definitely not a LNT tradition but I love the pumpkins in the Rogue river canyon! Last weekend I counted 27 pumpkins from graves creek to foster bar!

I agree with the LNT sentiment. Was torn whether to love or hate and I fell into the love category as display was subtle, but awesome. I would love to hear from artist(s)

That was the best part of the pumpkins on the Rogue! They were all painted and not all of them were pumpkins, some were gourds. It was really cool to see all the different funny faces and crazy intricate patterns painted on them!

Great article! Maybe a pumpkin clean up trip is in order? It's a great excuse to tell the wife why I need to go boating again lol!

We just did this float last week and we filled an entire trash bag with pumpkins, many of which were rotten. I like the idea, hate the execution.

I'm curious what the "net positives for the river system" are?

Please, enlighten us about the "net positive" effects of pumpkins. I'm guessing rotting breakfast burritos would also be a "net positive"?

If they are left behind they are just garbage someone left for the rest of us to clean up. Net positives? Yellowjacket, ant, mouse, or other vermin food? There is no justification, it's BS.
