Did you know the Roaring Fork River is quiet today compared to 12,000 years ago when big runoffs from alpine glaciers in the Aspen/Redstone areas and tectonic uplift (1 inch every 1000 years) caused the Roaring Fork River to cut 1 foot into valley floor every 1000 years. This roaring time left behind a cobble rock terrace under you today and a quieter, noncutting river bottom.”
