The water is starting to recede and the businesses downtown are starting to clean all the mud from their floors. It’ll be a lot of work but they will be up and running in no time.




But, as we drove around today I saw some more devastation that I thought I should share. There were condos along Fall River that are left falling over the river because of the power of the river water yesterday, a bridge which is one of many that washed out and thus people cannot get to the other side, and a motel that still has an incredible amount of water running through their parking lot and back into the river. (The river is usually on the left and about 20 feet wide) It was really unbelievable.


And then tomorrow I will post something that I saw yesterday on the rock outside my home that made me smile and will make you smile.

    What a wordless-shocking scene…..your photos reminds me of typhoon Talas in 2011. Hope recovery construction will make all damaged places back to normal as soon as possible.

    Rocky Mt. National Park was my first introduction to Colorado years ago, traveling with college chums. I’ll never forget my first glimpse of those mountains, and it grieves me today see the devastation your beautiful state is experiencing. Our daughter has been in Estes working at a family dude ranch near Aspen Lodge. It got inundated by the mudslides from Twin Peaks, but thankfully no one was harmed, and the buildings are intact, though much of the landscape/trees were swept away. Prayers being sent for your town’s (and state’s) full recovery.

    That third picture is of The Woodlands on Fall River. Our family had been staying in the cabin on the right not a month before the flood. It is a beautiful spot and we had a great time and made a lot of fond memories. To see it in such a state now leaves me almost speechless. Our thoughts are with everyone in Estes Park, and we hope they can recover from this quickly.
