The surprise birthday cake and the embarrassed 14 year old, as cousins that she has never met sing Happy Birthday to her. Do you love the birthday hat that I bought for her? Yes, it helped ease her pain. Notice that the candles aren't lit? It was too windy. Probably best though, since they could have been the cause of another wildfire in the state.
Here's the base of the dam where we started our 7 mile float trip.
Here's an interesting fact...belowe the dam there are roughly 15,000 fish per river mile. A fly fisherman's dream!
Check out this cool bridge that goes across an arm of the reservoir.
Before we went home we were able to take a tour of the dam. That was actually the girls' idea and we learned a lot of interesting facts. No cameras were allowed, though, so no pictures. :-(
The trip ended up being a success and the birthday girl even admitted that the midnight hike was the perfect was to end her birthday!
