Swimmer Escort - Durango whitewater park on Sunday

Shout out to the Kayaker that talked a swimmer off of the rocks above smelter and paddled him to shore on Sunday afternoon.

Nice work, he was lucky that you were there.

Some pictures from the dog park on river right.

I am surprised that the river looks a bit better with the higher water of the two low head dams. The river right line also looks like it would be a lot of fun

Some rocks have moved on the river left line and broken up that bad hydraulic. At 3200 is was pretty much green water over there. Flows are dropping now and river left is still good to go. It seems nature took care of the "Hole that ate Durango."
