Photo: A red river runs through it

Rafters float down the Colorado River underneath the old South Canyon Bridge just west of Glenwood Springs on Wednesday afternoon. A day long rainstorm in Garfield County and the surrounding area caused some mud runoff that spilled into the Roaring Fork river which, in turn, drained into the Colorado and colored it red from Two Rivers Park in Glenwood Springs past New Castle.
