This past Saturday I had tickets to attend the Craft Lager Festival in Manitou Springs. I enjoyed the festival last year and it’s one of the few fests that allow dogs. Unfortunately this year there was a massive mudslide and flood the evening before the festival that covered the park in mud and damaged all of the event equipment, so the festival has been rescheduled for this Saturday the 17th of August.
Instead of visiting the festival I decided to take the dogs on a road trip to Clear Creek at Lawson, just about an hour west of Denver on I-70. They played in the water and Fabi swam her heart out, crashing over the groomed rapids while Lucy just hung out being mellow. She did get in the water several times but she is smart enough to know the current and rapids were a bit too much for her swim skill level. She laid on the large rocks in the sun and watched Fabi spaz out.
I just found out that dogs will be allowed at the rescheduled festival this weekend so we’ll head down there Saturday!
