The Vacation Chronicles Part 1

Hi Friends, Mom has lots of pictures of our summer adventures, so she is going to break them up over a couple of days. Our human cousin from Kansas came to visit in early June and then we took her home when we went to watch some boat races. While she was here, we started our vacation time. We went to confluence park in Denver to float in the rapids. They are a Class 5 sport course that is built for the kyakers to play in. They are fun to ride down in a tube also. I mostly liked staying on the grass, but did put my paws in once in a while. Next time a view of our dash up into the mountains for FIB Ark and a couple of nights camping!!! Until Next Time,
Draco

A fun place to play in downtown denver This is the view from the top of the course....it looks tame huh! This is were they control the flow of the course, they were letting lots of water out

A little family of geese swimming all around the rapids

I am going to work on my tan, go ahead and tube without me.

This was a Thursday afternoon but lots of people on the river

Mom won't make me go on a ride, will she dad?

Here is where mom made me get in the water to cool off. Thank goodness there
was not a tube involved.
There were lots of doggies and a couple of small ones that I could play with

Here I am guarding my dad...he might be falling asleep

My human sister and our Kansas cousin heading up to the rapids

My cousin is smiling...what is wrong with her...she just came blasting down the rapids.

There was lots of swimming and splashing around...

Personally, I like doing this the best.

Here is a little video of the rapids!
Mom let her camera get a little wonky at the end.

  4. That looks like a fun way to spend the day. Did you play with the geese, Draco?

    I used to have several friends who lived in Denver. One lives in SD now, two moved to ID, the other three I haven't heard from in a long time.
