The first night that we were there, we were hanging out in the trailer, eating dinner. (It was totally dark outside) Then, suddenly, there were all these red lights flashing outside our window! We peeked out the window, and there were a bunch of fire trucks outside! The only reason that we could think of for them to come all the way out here was that maybe there was a fire, and we had to leave, or we just weren't supposed to be there anyway. My dad went out to talk to them, and then they drove away. They said that someone had called in, and said that there was a fire, somewhere out here. But we were fine, so they left, and we didn't see anybody else for the rest of the night.
The next morning, we hopped in the truck, and drove over a little trail by the lake. The water level is slowly getting lower, but when the water is high enough, there are enough of certain chemicals present for tufa to grow. So as the water recedes, there's a bunch of tufa left over! There was a little trail that went down to the water, so we did that.
