My day started out with household chores and then trimming the Rhododendron on the west side of my house. With those tasks completed, I set out for a surprise birthday party for a Mazamas friend at the McMemamins Edgefield in Troutdale. This place is a 38 acre farmland that includes a movie theater, hotel, fine dining, pitch and putt golf course, distillery, and much more. The Mazamas were well represented here - both of the climb leaders that I have assisted with for the basic climbing class were here. I was also pleasantly surprised to see a long time friend of my parents there. It was good thing that we have arrived early, because this place was packed.
