River Mileage


River Right

Officially known as Upper Rattlesnake, however since there’s no “Lower” or “main” camp, most people refer to it simply as Rattlesnake.

This is an okay camp. The 1923 Birdseye Expedition stopped and captured a photo here. Since then, similar photos have been shot creating a time series of the changes of the camp. That photo is shown above and is in the public domain.

The origins of the name refer to a rattlesnake bite that occurred on an AzRA trip during a late night Groover visit on July 2, 1981. That story is shared here. Previously to that, the camp was known as 74 Mile Camp.
