February 10th at noon in the East Auditorium Please join Russell Bevill for a presentation on the history of the Yosemite Lumber Company and Yosemite Sugar Pine Lumber Company, who operated railroad logging systems in Yosemite National Park, harvesting timber on National Park Service lands from 1913 to 1930. Russell Bevill is an archeologist with URS Corporation who, under contract with the NPS, has documented the remains of these railroad logging systems. Mr. Bevill will present the results of the historical research and field documentation, and discuss the historical significance of the remains.

This presentation is open to both the general public and NPS employees.

WHY do they have to do these things in the middle of the week?

A majority of the Open House, Commentary, and other programs that I have seen posted also include free admission. They are not likely to want to extend that perk on a weekend.

Anybody know where the 'east auditorium' is?

Depending on weather, I had thought about heading up there on that day, but it would take some doing to be there before noon...sounds tempting though.

Ask this guy, he knows where everything is in Yosemite.

I asked him for directions to the top of Half Dome a few years ago and not only did he tell me where it was, he actually led me there by the paw.

This guy might know if you can't find the other guy.







Everything I know I learned from Chick-on is looking at you!
