Cindy and John Hooten check the stability of a bridge over Fountain Creek Wednesday night, July 16, 2004, that leads to "The Timber Lodge" cabins they've owned and operated since 1988. At one point Wednesday night water was flowing over the bridge in the 3600 block of West Colorado Ave. They said all the cabins survived the rain and high water just fine.
