I was out riding this morning along the Poudre River and witnessed the deadly effects of a non-man-made low sunspot count. A doe appears to have delivered her fawn on an island in the river last night, and are now trapped by rapidly rising waters from record snowmelt.
The water is probably six feet deep on both sides of the island, running very fast, and rising perhaps six inches per hour. I contacted the Colorado Division of Wildlife and they are going to send someone over but were not willing to risk human life for a rescue.
I think that they should be able to drop someone off the bridge if they can get there soon enough. The island will definitely be underwater by tonight.
