Salt River Necklace Collection
The Cache la Poudre River (KASH lə POO-dər), also known as the Poudre River, is French for “Hide or Cache the Powder” It refers to an incident in the 1820s when French trappers, caught by a snowstorm, were forced to bury part of their gunpowder along the banks of the river.
Its headwaters originate in the northern part of Rocky Mountain National Park and this is the first river I was ever on in a self-bailing boat too. What an amazing invention that is! One of my sculptures called, Summer Waves incorporates a broken whitewater rafting paddle from a friend who guides on this river near Ft. Collins.
Save The Poudre: Poudre Waterkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore the Cache la Poudre River of Northern Colorado.
