Solstice at FIBArk

The Sun was as high in the sky as it could be, and we were in Salida for the last day of FIBArk, catching the Crazy River Dogs Contest and the Ladies Freestyle Kayak competition. (Here is an earlier report on the river dogs.)

Some low-resolution video from my digital camera here -- yes, it's the same announcer for both events.

River dog Storm fights the current in the current in the run-off-swollen river. He missed the stick at first, which put him out of the top finishers. Being a dog, he did not know that.
