    Although the bears are discouraged from this kind of interaction with humans at Yellowstone anymore, you can still experience a "bear jam" where everyone stops to look at a bear. One of the employees favorite pranks is to stop on the side of the road, point, then watch everyone behind them stop while trying to see what is out there. They then drive off.

    I'm almost certain they did.

    Here's my grandmother working as a civilian at Fort Chaffee, she was there when the famous "Elvis getting a Army haircut" photos were taken.

    Do they still have summer camps for kids?

    Looks like trouble here, still the same way 60+ years later.

    31 Dodger Did I get the date wrong on this picture?I can't tell if that is sarcasm in your post.I usually just post the date or info that I find with the photo if there is any.If not then your right that humpback is beaten up pretty good.:D
     
  23. Ester Eddie, I don't think he's being sarcastic, just stating what I was also thinking. The Dodge panel truck would only be 2 years old in 1938. It sure had a rough life if the date on the picture is correct. Lots of times the photo info isn't correct, but I don't see anything in the picture to date it any later. Even if it's early 40's the poor panel still had a rough life.
