Mountain Buzz is famous. | Denver | Colorado's Online News Leader | Deadly Arkansas River rapid to remain unchanged

"At rafting and boating message board, rafters have suggested using dynamite on Frog Rock or yanking it from the river. Some have encouraged people to go out on their own and drop rocks in the river to plug the sieve."

Didn't they dredge the left side while they had the equipment in there? Maybe they didn't report that to their superiors. Maybe the folks at are missing something.

Can anyone post pictures and verify that there was a change to the left channel?

There are already pictures on the Frog Rock Thread and being mentioned on 9news doesn't make mtnbuzz famous. It would appear that from the comments they picked, that it would be infamous anyway.

I believe there is a buzzard who works at 9news, but not the one who wrote that story.

Officials will add a larger sign warning rafters about Frog Rock's dangerous underwater sieve but will not change the rapid, according to The Colorado Springs Gazette.
If the story is based on what the Gazette has to say............

I agree with what was stated in the article. It represented the facts clearly, and explained what happened and why. As far as I am concerned it was an honest account of the story (except perhaps for the part about the river being restored to it's original condition, per the photos on the Frog Rock thread-they cleaned the left channel some).

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.
