Re: Democrat-Gazette Pics Of Mulberry float 5-21

The pictures were associated directly with an article that Buddy Gough did with Mike Peerson and I on the Mulberry River last Monday.

Here is the article in the Outdoors edition of the Democrat Gazette today. Nice coverage by Buddy Gough, too bad he could not get on the river.

Re: Road Access to Richland Creek Campground

Sorry Tommy, you are correct the trail I was referring to is on river left, I must have been sleep walking when I wrote that!

Re: Road Access to Richland Creek Campground

I have talked to the Forest Service and the campground is closed with no camping allowed. The guy I talked to in the Jasper office said you can hike in the area.

Re: Warning! Dangerous sieve on Frog Bayou

Thanks for all the good comments on this situation. I really felt it was important to share this accident to alert the paddling community of the potential problems that exist at this rapid. Mike, your points about the rating are well taken. The potential penalty is certainly more than class II. At h...

The water level was 3.4 on the Rudy gauge with clear skies and the temperature predicted to reach the mid 50’s. I have made this run close to 100 times, and I have never known there was a sieve or da...
