CA State Plane to CA Teale Albers converts false northing ft-->m

I have a raster in NAD83 CA State Plane Zone II (US feet) that I need to project to NAD83 CA Teale Albers (US feet).  When I run the project raster tool, the false northing on the output raster changes from -4,000,000 (what it should be per the .prj file) to -13,123,333.3333.  The difference between the two numbers is a factor of 3.28 so my guess this is a feet to meters issue.  

 

The values of the original raster (the one in SP) are in feet.  The spatial reference properties are:
Spatial reference: NAD_1983_StatePlane_California_II_FIPS_0402_Feet
Linear Unit: Foot_US (0.304801)
Angular Unit: Degree (0.0174532925199433)
false_easting: 6561666.666666666
false_northing: 1640416.666666667
central_meridian: -122
standard_parallel_1: 38.33333333333334
standard_parallel_2: 39.83333333333334
latitude_of_origin: 37.66666666666666
Datum: D_North_American_1983

 

The spatial reference properties that the projected raster SHOULD have:
Spatial reference: NAD_1983_California_Teale_Albers_FtUS
Linear Unit: Foot_US (0.304801)
Angular Unit: Degree (0.0174532925199433)
false_easting: 0
false_northing: -4000000
central_meridian: -120
standard_parallel_1: 34
standard_parallel_2: 40.5
latitude_of_origin: 0
Datum: D_North_American_1983

 

When I run the tool on the original raster, the spatial reference properties that the raster ends up having:
Spatial reference: NAD_1983_California_Teale_Albers_FtUS
Linear Unit: Foot_US (0.304801)
Angular Unit: Degree (0.0174532925199433)
false_easting: 0
false_northing: -13123333.33333333
central_meridian: -120
standard_parallel_1: 34
standard_parallel_2: 40.5
latitude_of_origin: 0
Datum: D_North_American_1983

 

The resulting raster ends up somewhere in northern Canada.  Certainly no offense to Canada, but I need my data to be in Sonoma County. Any ideas on why -4000000 is being converted to -13123333.3333?
