My good friend and sister-in-law Amy had a landmark birthday this summer.  Her ever-thoughtful husband Jeb decided to plan a surprise camping/float trip for her to celebrate.  They were kind enough to include me on this trip and I had a great time with them and their friends.  
 Looking out at the Flathead river from near the camp site This is for my Okie friends, we aren't used to water this clear!  
 Our home for the weekend Madison, Storm, Aubrey, Amy, Jeb in the foreground.  I had already trekked the steep 
slope down to the water, and once was enough for me! 
 Friday morning moonset  Jeb knows how to cook up a beautiful camp breakfast! 
 Jeb, always willing to be Amy's gift  Now we are on our float.  My waterproof camera was not the greatest, but at least it worked.
 We came around a bend to find everyone else calmly fishing all while wearing birthday
 hats.  Then they gave the birthday girl a hat of her own.  Madison was grabbing a nap.
Storm, teaching Madison how to fly fish
 Storm & Madison Osprey nest and a pretty rock bluff.  It was really neat in person. 
 Stopping for some fishing, snacks, and bluff jumping.  The water was COLD! Jeb doing a little fishing
 Showing off a huge fish, so big it broke the pole These two dogs were so cute.  That little white one ruled that ice chest.
 Storm making the first bluff jump Colter giving us a dance before he made his jump
 Friday night Jeb treated everyone to steaks and we had a huge birthday dinner It included Morel mushrooms, corn, salads, and the works

   On my drive out on Saturday I made a lot of stops for photos.  This is Upper Twin Creek.
