BOULDER — Deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office spent Wednesday night responding to a Boulder High senior class camping trip that got out of hand in the area of Gordon Gulch.
In the end, three students were taken by ambulance to the Boulder Community Hospital for problems related to overconsumption of alcohol, three more were taken to the alcohol recovery center, and one student was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault and released to her parents.
Gordon Gulch is on Colo. 72 between Nederland and Ward. When deputies arrived, they found about 200 students camping in the area, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Rick Brough.
Due to the large number of students and the inclement weather that was moving in, the deputies remained on scene overnight to maintain order and provide medical assistance, Brough said.
When deputies discovered that the students had alcohol, they made them pour it out.
Later in the evening, several students had to receive treatment for alcohol consumption, and, in the morning, additional deputies went to the campsite to help students leave the area. A tow truck was requested to help move 40 to 50 cars that had become stuck. Those students will be billed later, according to Brough.

Seriously….you can’t make this up.
Old man winter is a stubborn bugger this year. Yesterday I picked up some more crushed rock for the driveway project, it has been on standby since I shot this picture last week. So far I have hauled about a yard of road base 1/3 of a yard at a time and now 2/3 of the gray crusher fines….only have about 8-10 yards to go…it beats the mud that developed from the wood-chips of many years ago.
Last week we had about 8-9″ inches, and it just melted away 2 days ago, I got another load of the gray crusher fines yesterday, and set it about where the truck is parked. This morning we woke to about 4-5″ as well…it just keeps on coming. The ice left the reservoir earlier this week finally and last nights freeze + precip did not produce more ice!
We are heading out on Sat..for the great Canyon Adventure road trip….Warm sunshine and Desert Air!!
