Good thing no one reports and writes articles on rafts flipping on Clear Creek!!

or Kayakers swimming!

I'm sure there are more kayakers swimming daily than rafters!
(except those days on the eagle maybe?)

You guys should leave comments in the comments section at the bottom of the page. They will print them in the paper sometimes.
