Photos: Lakewood Gulch ribbon-cutting celebrates Sun Valley, Baby Matthew

The trickling tributary in Sun Valley was for years walled in by concrete in an attempt to corral its flow -- a dangerous situation that proved deadly in 2007 when a two-year-old was washed away in a flash flood. On Monday, city dignitaries cut a ceremonial red ribbon on Lakewood Gulch's stunning multi-million-dollar transformation.
