Similar incident happened on the Steamboat town run last year (or maybe the year before). The group wrapped their canoe, but failed to let anyone know. Couple passersby spotted the canoe and called the police, for fear that the group was still in the river. The cops had a "hunch" and found the group down at one of the bars, perfectly fine.

It's a good day to be a duck....

Yes, pretty much we called dispatch right when after it happened to let them know everyone was okay and boat was pinned. There were a few boats coming down after us and didn't want any unnecessary fuss. We lucked out with the Mountain Rescue and a few others helping us right away that evening before the water got higher today mainly because they knew who we were. Because of them, we were able to get it recovered from a tough spot quickly. We certainly did not intend on someone cleaning up our mess, just appreciative of the help in a big way. Also, as educators, we are constantly learning new things ourselves and every experience helps us do just that.

Here is video of part of recovery

Happy everyone is safe. Anyone know about the cat pinned in Dowds earlier this week? It's not there today.
