First off, that has nothing to do with the Ark having peaked or not...the upper C and Brown's have very different characteristics, mainly the upper C is super easy. I see people take their dogs down Brown's all the time, I guess it would depend on your familiarity with it and your ability to manuever your craft.
Mike, I think you are absolutely right. If we get some sunny warm days in a row soon, we might see another small spike, otherwise it's going to continue to slowly fade...strange season indeed, started running the Ark in feb. this year with the early releases, and it looks like the peak was May 19 or 20th on LC, CC, Chalk Creek and SF Ark.
