Poudre River

LOOKING Closer

Located on PBT’s long-time friend Steve Den’s deck in Poudre Canyon, this camera provides an upstream view of the Poudre River. The Poudre River is the only federally designated Wild & Scenic River in Colorado and the Platte Basin. The Wild & Scenic River act of 1968 enacted by the U.S. Congress to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations. This camera watched the river for exactly one year and then was retired.
