Deadhead the tent ALL the time

Not just in Hell Roaring Canyon.
We camped on a sandbar in Spanish Bottom two nights before pickup. We all hiked that extra day. The party of five tents and six people hiked to the top of the Doll House.
The six people gazed down and saw four tents. Number five tent had not been tied to anything other than stakes and launched itself sleeping pad and bag and all down Cataract Canyon
Someone had a cold night (that one was freezing)
Also bring bocce balls. Sandbar bocce is a hoot and many of them are large enough to play.
There is more than one jet boat operator but I am happy we chose Tex. His crew was courteous and slowed when approaching campsites so as not to endanger other boats or paddlers on the water.
