On the Hill: Playing in the sprinklers at Beaver Creek

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Playing in the sprinklers at Beaver Creek.

Conditions: A once in a year opportunity, sprinklers at Beaver Creek are turned on only to wet the grass before a fireworks show. The Beaver Creek fireworks are scheduled for 9:30 p.m. with the music of the Williams Brothers and Jack Ingram kicking off the festivities starting at 6 p.m. The refreshing stream of the sprinklers abut the Overlook trail at Beaver Creek, one of the many hiking trails accessible on your own or with the help of a guide at the Beaver Creek Hiking Center.

Today's weather: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 71. North northwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.. — National Weather Service
