Middle Fork of the Salmon - Pool Campground - Layover Day!
We hiked a mile up to Camas creek, and then hiked up three miles
to cave creek. Camas creek is a pretty hike but has no boating
potential due to the class VI drop in the narrows. Today was a
very hot day, and I jumped into the creek twice to cool off. We
relaxed in the afternoon in the shade of two large Ponderosa
pines in the campsite. Later in the afternoon, the whole group
lined up in the shade of the two tree trunks and slowly rotated
with the sun. That evening, we started giving Tom a hard time
about telling his infamous "air hose" story, but Tom broke with
character and kept mum on the subject. We did however manage to
get Dave to tell his romantic "Prom night" story.
