LeVitre’s friend posted a photo from the sunken camera on her page that showed LeVitre with her mother and a cousin. The Riverton Silverwolves Lacrosse page also showed a photo of a girls’ team, asking "Who took this picture?"
LeVitre is not a big Facebook user, so the post from her friend sat on her page for a while before a daughter called on Jan. 24 and told her to look at it.
"WHAAAAAT THE HECK! YESSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS MY CAMERA! YAAAAAAAY! Seriously, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!!!!???!!!," LeVitre responded to the photo on her page.
That was just after noon on Jan. 24. By that evening, LeVitre and Clark were on the phone laughing about the crazy story.
"Most people wouldn’t go out of their way like that. I so appreciate their efforts," LeVitre said. "I need to tell thank you to a lot of people."
The camera, and its memory card, is headed back to Utah, and LeVitre has plans for her old friend.
"I want to shadowbox it and put some sand on the bottom and have it in my house," she said. "It will be a reminder of the fun story and the great people who made it happen."
A bit of mystery remains. It appears that at least one photo was taken after the Pentax fell into Lake Tahoe.
"That is pretty funky. Maybe the pressure from the water activated it," LeVitre said. "Or maybe a fish is really into photography."
