While working for a previous employer, Jon Altschuld was part of the design team for permanent flood recovery/repair projects along Fish Creek upstream of Estes Lake. These projects involved infrastructure (Fish Creek Road and adjacent bridges) repairs, trail repairs, and restoration of a healthy creek corridor for stretches of Fish Creek that were heavily affected by the flood. In addition to being part of the design team, Jon also flew sections of the projects and captured photos, videos, and 3D data.
