On A Not-So-Dark Night….

…Park Rangers and visitors gathered around for the first Camp Fire Program of the season on July 14th.  Despite the thunderstorms, rain showers, and even a tornado warning for the lower Baker County which persisted throughout the day; the skies still cleared and made for a warm pleasant evening for a program and S’mores.

Exploring old stories, rumors, and tall tales; visitors and park staff explored the mystery that surrounds the dredge:  “Is Joe Bush Real?”  Although, no solid conclusions were reached, it was a great time to remember the stories of pranks and mysteries passed down to us by the folks that lived and grew up with the dredge.

Of course, what is a campfire without S’mores?  Once again, thank you to the fire crew from Skamainia Co District 6 for the awesome donation of the marshmallow roasters!

So, if you missed this one, stayed tuned because we have more scheduled.  Next Camp Fire will be on July 28th with a new program from Ranger Sara.  We’ll see you there!
