It’s been more than two months since Colorado’s historic floods and in tiny Jamestown, northwest of Boulder, the cleanup is far from over. During the flood, water ripped houses from their foundations and even dragged some downstream.

Many locals are still displaced and some will never return. Those who do want to come back, however, are getting help from volunteers who journey into the mountains every weekend to work on restoring the battered town.
