When you work in a remote area, any occasion is an excuse for a party with friends. And since we were having company for the weekend, I planned one. Our good friends Charlie and Lynda are on their way from Washington state to south Texas for a winter job, and Richard was on his way home to Michigan from his seasonal job at Sequoia Kings Canyon NP. They all just happened to be dropping by to visit on the same weekend.
We had a wonderful time, and many of our co-workers dropped by as they got off work. We cooked chicken and pork on the grill, and I made potato salad and baked beans. Everyone brought something to share, and we shared the last of my tequila!
