We were there for "lunch" with a Casita group while on a pre-gathering gathering at the Buckskin Mountain State Park. There is a large gathering every year in February in Quartzsite, AZ.

Could be. I think it is Red Cedar, but there are also some big Western Hemlock in the Grove.
While I am at it here is couple more pics from The Grove:

That's it. Don't know if you've been to Mackinac Island, but it's interesting because there are no motor vehicles. All deliveries are even done with horse drawn wagons, and then of course there are bicycles everywhere. Neat place.

It's a palm tree and that building is in Key West. That's my story and I am sticking to it. The alcohol helps.

Hint:The primates that gave their name to two lava tubes found along this trail weren't monkeys-they were members of a 1950s outdoor club who found and explored the tubes.

Re: 1614

Although I've never been there myself( I've thought about it many times), I'm pretty sure you are in the area of the lava tubes known as Ape Caves on the lower Southern flanks of Mt St Helens. The miners and prospectors in the area in the 1800's and early 20th century claim to have had many encounters with sasquatches and said they lived in Ape Caves. My believe is that the "Cave Apes" climbers were parlaying on these legends rather the being the original "namers" of the cave.

I was lucky enough to stand on the summit of Mt St Helens while it was still there. It was the summer of 1960, IIRC.

Ken

If I'm not right, at least I've passed on a story.

The original photos were castings of downed trees covered with lava. The lava cooled before the trees burned out. It was an old flow as were the lava tubes. Longest lava tube in in the US (or somewhere) 2 1/2 miles. Yes, in the area of St. Helens. Here's another.
