Then are the unexpected things:
An injured osprey that a guest brought back to the cabins. Hmmm. We weren't even quite sure who to call.
I can tell you one thing if it's an emergency by land: we get quick response and we get a lot more than one answering the call.
We had several response teams, none of whom was really sure what to do. They finally took the osprey down to the Fresno area and then we heard he was moved to a wild life center closer to the Bay Area. And finally released back to our area. Not sure about that. But it seemed like there were several osprey circling above our cabins for a while trying to find their lost friend.
Sometimes a guest will twist an ankle or something while hiking.
Again. Fast response and lots of it.
It's a little more nerve-wracking when it involves your granddaughter's injured elbow. In this case, we had the response team but they couldn't fix the elbow.
But Levi was pretty happy to stand near the fire truck.
And while Charlotte looks a bit like a movie star here, ultimately her parents had to drive her down to the children's hospital in Fresno to put her dislocated elbow back into place.
So anyway...they just cut it down and left. It drifted to the marina of the guy who has a business directly across the lake from us. It got tangled in one of his boats, with the potential to cauase a lot of damage. So at 10:30 at night he got it loose from the boat and set it adrift. And it drifted all the way across the lake to our shore, right at one of our best fishing holes, and in the afternoon it started drifting toward our dock, with the potential then to smoosh our boats. So Mark called the forest service and basically said, "Come take care of your tree."
We got the forest service and the sheriff's department, all tryingto figure out how to tug the tree away from us and to somewhere more safe.
And as they finally figured out how to drag it away, these two drifted right in front of my camera...
