Letter: Let’s leave the rivers alone

When are people going to be satisfied with what nature has given us and quit trying to (so-called) make it better, which very seldom happens?

Especially for the city of Glenwood to be trying to put in more whitewater parks in our “natural“ river. I don’t think the one already in West Glenwood should have been allowed.

We live here to enjoy nature in its pristine beauty, not to alter it to fit our needs or for financial gain. Pouring concrete in our natural rivers is not a way to protect or respect our land. If the stretch of the Colorado River from Grizzly Creek to Two Rivers Park is not wavy enough for river enthusiasts, they can go somewhere else. Hopefully one day humans will learn to leave nature alone.
