Kayaking Bear Creek Flood Waters Video

Kayakers taking the run from Idledale to Morrison during Colorado's Flooding on Bear Creek at 650 CFS normally just 65 CFS this time of the year.

No injuries but two missing boats still at dark as one was last seen floating through the town of Morrison over the spillway headed to Bear Creek Lake in Lakewood Colorado.

Anybody with any word of the missing boats please post.
Video from today September 12, 2013

That's Kevin's unmanned boat at the takeout. We pulled it off of a diversion dam down in Bear Creek State Park last night, so it's accounted for. The ranger at the park said they were keeping the gates closed, and were expecting up to 7' more water in the reservoir. The paved parking area was already flooded last night.

That video is me (first paddler and swimmer), Bridger, boofing onto my boat, and Steve throwing a 360 at the lip for fun. Brian boofed onto my head but that didn't make it into this video.

My boat hung up on a rock just downstream and we got it out, kicked out some massive dents, and continued on with a grin. Awesome run. Lost a paddle.
