Seriously?

I have a feeling calling them "kayakers" is like when the media calls a homeless guy on a bike a cyclist. Or a tourist in garden of the gods a climber.

They were probably on inflatable mattresses, easily mistaken for kayaks in the same way innertubes are easily confused for self-bailing rafts.

Tomayto, tomahto. Half my non-boating friends routinely ask me "how's the rafting?" this time of year...

Two people in a rented double duckie tried to run the mank fake waterfall by REI instead of the boat chute at Confluence.:p...talk about maximum exposure for your ineptitude...news said they were tourists....must have completely misunderstood the cairns and orange bouys that mark the chutes...doh!

Damn! I missed it! I was at REI int the morning too, and I even walked over to the creek to take a peek while waiting for someone to show up at Starbucks. LoL

I could have sent them home with a nice YouTube video as a souvenir of their Colorado vacation. ��

I am glad they are OK.
