Thought I'd Share This

Family Commemorative Sign

In the late spring of 2008 the extended family got together to jointly put up a commemorative sign along the Harriman Trail in the SNRA near our cabins in Idaho. My Great Uncle Frank Jeffries along with a Doctor bought a cabin in Easley area in 1926 which remained in the family until the 1980s. The extended family now has 4 cabins in this area and it is a reunion point every summer. Only a lucky few still reside in Idaho the rest of us come/travel from CA, OR, WA, KS, CO & TX..

Now to the point, this spring the sign was erected and all but 2 photos are mine (my contribution). I found working with the FS can prove to be frustrating at times. I understood the beaver choice to go with the pond (I did not have a decent one) but the sandpiper was a big HUH! None of us can remember ever seeing one around this area and we do wade the river fly fishing and do wildflower photo walks. We suggested a water ouzel (dipper) which is plentiful in place of the sandpiper but it was vetoed. This was the fourth version that finally passed muster with the FS and the Blaine County Rec. Dist.

Just thought Id share.

The first 10 days up were more rain than sun and we did get warm up there for awhile. The most aggravating problem was a bear that thought nothing of getting on the cabin deck and looking in at you through the window. A little disconcerting when one is setting at the table next to the window reading and upon hearing a noise look-up to see a bear with it's nose inches from the glass checking you out. As the weather grew warmer we saw it less and less but it still was around. I'll attach a jpeg of the bear up a tree between the 2 cabins as it was investigating a pizza pan that was used to cover the top of a bird feeder (long gone) to prevent the squirrels from getting into the seed.

Thanks for the complment, the sign project was fun and brings back a lot of family memories of times up there.
