Rogue River Flooding

Right now is not a good time to go backpacking the Rogue River. Remember the outhouses at the Grave Creek boat ramp? You can barely see them in this picture.

wow, I was there a month ago. I parked my car several feet below water in that picture.

Maybe if you parked above you could walk past that part. The trail is probably above water other places. It would be cool to see all the water flow.

Ew. Good thing the solution to pollution is dilution.
Will hike off trail for fun.

this happens most years, maybe they do something to prevent any problems like pump it out in the fall, then lock the door

there are port-a-potties further up next to the road
