Our Little Corner of the World...

While the police department was working hard in town...

The fire department...

...aided by the Forestry Fire Department...

held canoe races all day on Saturday!!!
There were hamburgers, hot dogs, sno cones, and a fair amount of beer...

And wet of whom snagged a burger...

"Awwww P-O-P!!!!  But that burger REALLY smelled good...and it was right there...
Annnnnnd....can't I P-L-E-A-S-E run around with the other dogs off leash???"

Then, of course, there were the canoe races....

...with a fair amount of pushing and shoving and capsizing...

The leaders of the pack...

And the winner is....!!!

The Firemen's canoe races is a fundraiser for the all volunteer
fire department of Mammoth Lakes...
