I saw this thing sitting on a log in the edge of the creek July/1/09. I thought it was strange just sitting there,figured someone had found it in the creek and just sat it up there. I snapped a couple of photos and went on. I wondered later on if I should have brought it out or mentioned it to a ranger. I figured it would be long gone after the next high water. I saw the previous post was from May/08. Pretty cool it's been around a while.
