Kayaking Flooded Boulder Creek, Elephant Buttress on September 12th, 2013

Portions of Colorado have been ravaged lately by unprecedented amounts of rain.  Some areas of Colorado have received over 9 inches of rain in only 3 days.  One town saw 6.5 inches in only 18 hours.  This has caused intense flash flooding that has cut off towns from help due to swollen rivers swallowing roads and bridges.

Despite all the destruction, local kayaker Forrest Noble and friends got out after it on the swollen and raging boulder creek.

Here at Snowbrains, our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of the three individuals who have perished due to the flooding.

“Boulder Creek Flooding out perfect morning for a Sick Day. The creek is at 1,800cfs kayaking Elephant Buttress rapid.” – Forest Noble

  1. Crazy, This guy probably ocean surfs on the east cost during hurricanes.
    Everyone else evacuates town !

    Here on the Potomac River a guy was out on the River during a flood.
    A woman cop ordered him ashore. He sez NO, “hey lady I know what I’m doing, buzz off”
    Cop arrests him when he comes in.

    The charges were dropped when cops found out he was not lying. He was the world champion
    in singles kayaking in his boat class !
