Leo runs a small ledge while John watches from below.


The Cooper is hard to beat on a hot summer day. The flows were a bit lower than I expected but we still had fun. John and I made 3 laps. Had there been more daylight, I'd have taken another 3. I used John's breakdown on the third lap to retrieve Josh's paddle along the way. Click here to read more about that fiasco.
