Vail photo: Busy in the blizzard
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – Sage Adventures was doing kayak training on Gore Creek Monday and came across the tree, which had fallen across Gore Creek, blocking the river and making for a very dangerous kayak situation in ‘little Dowd’ in the Intermountain area of West Vail. Darryl Bangert and Peter Halverson belayed down to the creek and hooked up cables from a West Vail Texaco Tow truck. The truck pulled the tree out of the water and Bangert and Halverson used chainsaws to cut up the tree.
