Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck spent a few days in Winter Park, Colorado. You might remember that last summer, Zeb, Soapy, and JB Duck and three generations of humans became a family.
Last year we hiked along the Fraser River. That is where our picture at the top of this page was taken. This year was different. Things had flooded. Winter Park is a ski and snowboard area. They had so much snow this winter. So much fun for skiing, snowboarding and all winter sports.
But, the snow melted and Colorado had a lot of rain. The road to our condo complex was closed,
part of it washed out by the flooding. We came in another way, but there was a lot of water damage.
This is the path we always took along the Fraser River. You can see part of the path has washed out.
We could not walk on this part of the trail; the flood water was too fast.
Here Zeb and Soapy are sitting on sand bags.
Those trees do not belong in the river, just near it.
We did have fun this year; so do visit Winter Park and Fraser. The water is receding, and all the summer activities will open today or in a few days. You will have a great vacation there, but do be careful near the water. It is high and fast now. Be safe in Winter Park and wherever you go.
We will go back this summer and we hope to see you there.
