On the Hill: Riverfest 2013

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today’s activity: Stand-up paddleboarding at Riverfest 2013

Conditions: The Eagle River Watershed Council's Riverfest party was once again a success this year, selling out prior to the event, which treated participants to a float down the Colorado River with Lakota Guides, followed by a barbecue party from Moe’s with live bluegrass music from the Olora Bros and beer from Bonfire Brewery, of Eagle. The event celebrated a four-mile stretch of the Colorado River in Eagle County that is protected by Open Space and is currently being equipped with a new boat launch.

Today’s weather: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 p.m. Mostly sunny, with a high near 69. Calm wind becoming northeast around 5 mph. — National Weather Service
