Just in case you missed this on our Best Places to go Swimming ( you can see it here :) ) I am posting it again to give a refresher. With the warm weather upon us it is tempting to go cool off in the Poudre River, but I can't stress this enough, DO NOT GO IN TO THE WATER! I know that sounds like a line from "Jaws" , but in all seriousness the river is not safe. It is high and it is moving fast. Just be patient and while you are waiting, cool off in a swimming pool or go jump in a lake :).
