    Wonderful that this remembrance is occurring. I was at Hoopa for that dreadful event, water to the ceiling of home. Was never able to go back. I have seen one photo of Hoopa, there is some snow on the ground, so it was a few days afterwards. Do you have other photos of the flooding on the Trinity, Klamath and Salmon Rivers. I hope you do not forget these areas, the damage was just a devastating.
