A woman was swept down the St. Vrain River at Rocky Mountain National Park after slipping on some wet rocks earlier this week.

According to a news release from the park via the National Park Service, the 45-year-old  woman from Oklahoma, whose name was not disclosed in the news release, fell into the St. Vrain River about one mile from the Wild Basin Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park on Monday (June 28).

She reportedly slipped on wet rocks and was swept approximately 100 feet downstream under some large logs; fortunately, the woman was able to pull herself up on a variety of log debris.

Rocky Mountain National Park Search and Rescue crew members arrived on the scene and assisted the woman from the log debris, as per the news release. The woman was located on the south side of the river; as a result, no rescuers or swift water teams had to deploy in the water.

Members of Estes Valley Fire Protection District, Dive and Swiftwater Rescue Team, Boulder Emergency Squad, and Allenspark Fire Protection were also on scene ready to assist RMNP Search and Rescue Team members, should extra assistance have been necessary.

Following the rescue, the woman’s condition was assessed by park rangers and she walked out with team members. Later, she was further evaluated by Estes Park Health at the trailhead and was reportedly not in need of transport by ambulance.

Instances like these are a good reminder that mountain streams can be dangerous. The National Park Service is reminding visitors to stay back from the banks of streams and rivers.

Additionally, it's important to note that rocks at the streamside, as well as in steams are often slippery - not to mention that the water beneath the rocks could very well be deep and extremely cold.

Children should be supervised at all times while spending time by the water.

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
