MAY: We arrived mid-month to glorious weather - so fabulous that the 2nd day we were here our friend Jen convinced us to canoe with her and Socs (Daniel's dog) down the North Upper Truckee river from Elks Club Road to where we used to live on Colorado Court, just a mile short of the lake. The river was raging and fuller than I have ever seen it. Bill absolutely did not think this was the best idea - but he indulges me, and I'm so glad he does because it was a wild ride like I've never had before! We capsized twice, the second time we lost a paddle but Bill was able to retrieve it around a bend. Jen capsized once and ended up losing her crocs but not the dog! We were drenched and frozen but totally exhilarated!
|Jen and Socs - before the capsizing, I think!|
Levi - who is hiking the PCT caught up to us in SLT - I went and picked him and some friends up at Echo Lake and brought them back here for showers, food and fun.
We began working our three days/week at the campground - we were both supposed to work in the office but Bill found a way to spend most of the day in the golf cart making sure everyone in the campground was happy - or else! The Billy and Joel band played one last time at the Flight Deck where we danced until the very end.
