Forty years ago today she began to make her impact on our world. Things haven't settled down since. She marches to her own drummer. But now she's not just marching, she's flying.
Yes, she's going to fly off that bridge. She "celebrated" yesterday by going bungee jumping.
Isaac and Irene anticipated what her reaction might be.
Canyon Creek, in the foothills east of Woodland, Washington, is a wild place. White water kayakers were risking life and limb down below, wa-a-a-y down below.
Isaac was nervous, but Irene wanted to know all about it.
Corey was harnessed to the cable railing to get photos.
There she goes. Fly away!
After free falling, then swinging and bouncing back and forth under the bridge, she was reeled in.
Now for the backwards launch. Am I really doing this?
One false start. Corey was right there to capture the moment of sheer terror.
Oh God! OK, I'm good.
The kids look on through the safety of the grate.
It was a long day: a long drive, and long wait on the bridge, a long way back home.
But it was certainly memorable!
Happy Birthday, Jill!
