You may need to consider the snow. I sure that it will be better by then. I just ran Slick Rock and had a 1/2 mile of snow covered trail. And Deer Valley is higher.

I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

First part was a bit rough and the river was about 3' deep. Since I'm sitting on 31's it was about 4"-5" above the door openings. I was glad I kept the doors on this time, others had water pouring out when they got to the other side. The snow was a bit of a pain, it was made worse by the Jack A-- in front of me. He kept spinning and trying to power through every tough stop making deeeeeeep ruts and then winching out. I then had to fight his ruts. Other wise it was great, it was my first time. I do Deer Valley a couple times a years, I have a cabin off Hwy. 4

If you go in from Blue Lake side on Hwy 88, you can get pretty far. There is a river crossing, depending of the snow melt you may or may not have any issue's. The hardest part will be at the very end, last 100 yards going that way. If it gets to hard for you, before that point just turn around. Blue lake has good camping.

Remember that Deer Valley is at 8000-9000 feet. It probably isn't unusual to see snow well into June. Right when you guys are going is the end of the snowmelt so I would expect very high water levels.
