Red Mountain Creek? If so, please provide some more details.... where did you put in and take out, what was the flow and character of the run?

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

Shit, in 100 years maybe people will freak out with a sporadic flush of stoners from the foothills? Perhaps I'm wrong about this.

You are absolutely right in that this stuff happens all the time, not that it makes events like these ok. (and apparently this is just sediment flushing)

But I heard so much about that spill in Co, and I kept thinking "This goes on EVERYDAY in WV and no one gives a flying f*ck".

Surely you guys that go to cheatfest see it? Where's the outrage about Muddy Creek, Bulls run or any number of tribs up that way running bright orange? Yeah those are precipitations of yellow boy, but it's essentially the same thing, it runs with AMD everyday and kills it dead...Otherwise it would hold native trout from top to bottom (now just the very tippy-top).

No one outside of Clay county WV gave a damn when Buffalo Creek had a release that killed the stream with all of it's trout and smallmouth from top to bottom a few years ago.

Lets's take some of this outrage and apply it universally....maybe clean our waterways up.
