Boulder 4 Mile Canyon- Yardsale Last Friday

I don't have the SAR coverage, but I am thinking I better get it, especially after this situation.

I happened to walk and checkout the buttresses rapid this past Friday and noticed two kayaks pinned below the buttresses and paddles stuck on the bank. No paddlers were around from what I could see? As I was walking, a DOW person noticed me looking at kayaks, saw one of the pinned boats, and he then called for help. State police, county police, city police, swift water rescue, ambulences, fire trucks, and mountain rescue people were on seen in 5 minutes. They stopped traffic on the highway, it was a circus.

I heard the paddlers were ok, but they must not have called it in? Made me think, I don't want to try this section because if I swam, I would have everybody and their brother making a big deal out of it.

If you have a problem on Front Range Creeks, you better call it in ASAP or you will have a full on rescue team on site in a matter of minutes.

I would be curious if these were experienced paddlers or what happened? Anyone, know anything about this?
