RE:Lower Deschutes River Report II (Long)
Great reports on the Deschutes.
I just wanted to comment briefly on the outhouse scenario. First, the fact the BLM officer used common sense rather than the letter of the law is encouraging. Second, you are correct on the wrongheadedness of the BLM. The unlittered banks are simply a result of the combination of the law AND outhouses. Without the outhouses... Third, I hope you are wrong and the outhouses stay. No matter my love for the outdoors, there's a certain comfort in that early morning trip with the walls around you...just a tad of civility I'd certainly miss, not to mention the obvious environmental issues...
