Poudre Canyon closed due to rock slide

There was a flash flood that pushed boulders and debris onto Hwy 14 near 3 rocks rapid today. Currently the canyon is closed to traffic, unsure when it will open.

Also, there were many trees in the river creating a dam at 3 rocks rapid so it is a portage until those are removed. There is also a lot more wood floating downstream, be careful out there!

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. - Voltaire

What the...

There is something really surreal when you are sitting in an eddy watching the gulches around you flooding into the river moving debris rocks and logs turning the river black and making the water under the boat surge. All the guides on the river today made really great choices today getting all the clients down safely and everyone kept safe tight trips. I just want everyone to know the strainer in three way below Stevens Gulch is serious business I'll try to download the photos but definitely keep a heads up out their because a couple rapids have changes.

How long will the cleanup take? I bet a few of us could get it done quickly if they lend us a few cranes and some 6-packs!

Beth, per 9news friday at 10pm, 14 is open again. Atleast until the next big storm. Glad I got a couple runs through it last weekend.
