The aftermath of the Flood of 2013.

[Oct. 23rd, 2014 06:49:06 AM]

In the section of the Big Thompson Canyon, near Drake, CO., the road was destroyed. Access was impossible for a long time. Still today, with the bridges destroyed, clean up is waiting. Some say it was a 500 year flood. Others say it was a flood of biblical proportions. Ironically, this little cabin survived the Big Thompson flood of 1976, only to succumb to the Flood of 2013.

The demolition begins, 10/29/14.

Yikes. And if it's not bad enough, the escape is over a particle board bridge supported by a few hastily placed toothpicks. Great find. And hoping it's not yours!
