21Sept2013_1g_Robins-BDay-Lamb-Dinner_Boise-River_Diversion-DamYup! Still a birthday celebration. Today, though, is the culmination of the celebration. Gumbo for 60 people in Julia Davis Park! We raided the wine cellar, too. Marnie has done such an awesome job of coordinating all of this. She had everyone over for dinner last night. But first, a little trip down the Boise River to Luck Peak Dam. (The Boise River at Diversion Dam is pictured here.) Enjoy the photos and Left-Click to see them enlarged. Cheers!

Lucky Peak Reservoir. Notice the burn areas from the fires this past summer. Water level is low.

Lucky Peak Reservoir. Notice the burn areas from the fires this past summer. Water level is low. The sail boat will give you a reference for size. The reservoir is huge and so are the mountains.

Rock climbers at Diversion Dam. The rock formation is columnar basalt.

Then dinner at Marnie’s.

Thank you Mac and Marnie for having us all there to share this dinner. We had a great time. The Scotch tasting was good, too, Mac.
