Inner Tubing Season Ends With A Flash And A Bang

With a flash and a bang inner tubing came to an end in Southern Oregon.  Rain and temperatures in the low 60s marked the end of a great season.  Water was lower than it has been, but it meant longer rides.  River quality has been a problem, though, especially around Upper Tou Velle Park where Little Butte Creek enters.  A stagnant swamp has formed, which probably needs to be cleaned out.  We can only hope that people take the trouble to keep the water cleaner.  It’s a bit discouraging to see brown water one side, and relatively clear blue water on the other.  However, we look forward to another wonderful season of floating the river!
