The Animas River
has once again become an oasis for the multitude of
tubers who seek out its cool waters for relief from
the scorching heat of the afternoon sun. With temperatures
in the high 90s, hordes of river runners equipped with
the most creative of rubberized whitewa-ter craft,
have taken to the now-friendly waters of the Animas.
With multiple locations to enter and exit the run through
town, the spectacle of bathing suit-clad pedestrians
armed with all manner of floatation devices has become
a common sight on the streets of Durango.
