Thornton

Tomorrow we'll drive up to Thornton and tour the area around Eildon Weir where my dad recounts a dramatic adventure in which the family dog he had growing up, Dodge, saved him and his dad (my grampa who I never knew) from going over a dam spillway in their fishing boat when the engine would not start. As the story goes, they got Dodge to retrieve the mooring line of a nearby boat that was anchored so they could pull themselves to safety.
