The thirty-three camping sites at Potlatch State Park were filled by Thursday evening while tourists were just starting to pour into the Hood Canal area for the three day holiday. Lake Cushman State Park had all 80 camping sites filled by 4 p.m. Friday and the Staircase campground was also filled to capacity. The Ranger at Lake Cushman State Park suggested that if you want to be sure of getting a camping site there this week-end, it would be wise to be there before noon Friday.

They have been enjoying boat rides with their four grandchildren and of course John and Anne Perkins who are also just getting acquainted with the area.

They stopped in Toppenish to take in the Pew Wow parade before returning to White Swan to observe the gathering of Indian Tribes from all over North America, who were arriving for the ten day Pew Wow to be held there. Approximately 250 Teepees were being set up along with campers and trailers of all sizes and description. The Long House, a large oval building the size of a large gymnasium, was nearing completion. This was the only permanent building on the site. Joe, Michael and Gregg Pavel pitched in to help some of the Indians set up their concession stands. The beautiful colors of the Indian costumes decorated the scene. Women and little girls were dressed in white doe skin dresses but Jo Ann had prepared a large breakfast. Gordon and Mary Elaine picked papaya in the yard and little pigs squealed over the overripe left overs. Mary Elaine also picked plumeirias in the yard and started making leis. So fragrant and beautiful were the flowers, hibiscus everywhere and wild zinneas. Gordon opened a coconut and they drank the milk - very sweet but the coconut was too green to eat. A dredging operation in the harbor had turned up beautiful coral and many shells, among them cat eyes, cowries and cones which they collected in the very windy, balmy air.

The men and women who settled in America built their homes from logs, and made their furniture from wood cut in the forests. They heated their homes burning wood in their fireplaces, just as many people do today. We enjoy the beauty of walking quietly through the forests, or sitting under a shade tree and tossing rocks into the stream. We camp, as thousaiids did last weekend. We climb to the very top of a tree and play hide-and-seek with our friends. Deer live in the woods. Birds build their homes high in the trees. Beaver like to live in forests streams. And you ask "Why do we need trees?" Smokey Bear and I love the forests, I hope I've given you a few reasons to love them too. Smokey Bear is asking you to help keep our forests clean and green this summer. You can do your share by following Smokey Bear's ABC's: Always hold matches till cold. Be sure to drown all fires. Careful to crush all smokes. for a visit with her son and family.
