Yesterday evening we celebrated the birthday of our youngest member. Erika turned 22 and the rest of us decided we couldn’t possibly remember how we celebrated our 22nd birthday. The nights festivities started out with birthday candles stuck in leftover pastries and then moved on to a roaring bonfire complete with the roasting of stale Peeps. During the celebration a mule deer buck wandered close to the fire pit, looked us over and casually moved on. We shared stories and laughs and got to know each other just a little better. We are now moving into the last week and the pressure is on to get work finished and drink in the last of the walks and inspiring scenery.
