1967: Cleaning Up Lava Beds


In April of 1967, the community service portion of my Eagle Scout project was to haul trash out of Captain Jack's Stronghold at Lava Beds National Monument. I organized the troop and we spent the better part of a day crawling through caves, and over lava flows.... I'm in front wearing a silver hard hat and holding a rolled-up map.
