On the Hill: Wrapping up GoPro Mountain Games with dog jumping

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

Today’s activity: Watching the DockDogs Big Air finals at the GoPro Mountain Games.

Conditions: The GoPro Mountain Games wrapped up on Sunday with a few of the marquee events, like the Eukanuba DockDogs pro Big Air competition. With nothing but sunshine all day and a classic Colorado blue sky overhead, dogs sprinted off an astroturf dock into a pool of water in an effort to see who flies the farthest.

Today’s weather: Mostly sunny, with a high near 79. West wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. — National Weather Service
