Be safe on the river.
RTD has the full story of the Sunday evening rescue but this tidbit is worth repeating:
Firefighters received a call about 10:30 p.m. for a river rescue. They found the man, who was tangled in a tent, stuck under a tree.
Tangled in tent, stuck under a tree and I think we can safely assume in the water. That’s a bad place to find yourself.
The chart above from the Westham Flood Guage tells the story of what happened on the river and should be consulted anytime you’re planning river activities especially after three months of near constant rain.
