Big Thompson River


Big Thompson River
Estes Park, CO

Two years ago this month this, what appears to be, little river flooded Estes Park and tore down the Big Thompson Canyon flooding the cities of Ft. Collins and Boulder along the way.  It took eight lives and caused billions of dollars in damage.  The canyon has a history of severe flash flooding, but I am always in awe of the canyon beauty and its river, but I am reminded that the serenity I experience now can change in a heartbeat when severe weather comes.

A gentle river
Hides a frightening secret
It's a strong torrent

Beauty in the sound
Serenity and quiet
Become a torrent

The gentle river
Make peace and understanding
Give respect due it

Thanks be to God
