We had 440 people today, lots of interested people came by. We had a lot of fun, but worked hard. I walked over 3 miles while I was there. I took some pictures I think, but I don't know when my camera quit working. I will mess with that next, and try to upload them. My thanks to the NPS and the SLAGA volunteers, and everyone else who was there today.
