    Destroyed Inholder  Private Elwha Recreational Sites

    Frankie White Called me from Oregon yesterday. She owned one of the 134 INHOLDER private Elwha Recreational lots 25 years ago when it was destroyed by ONP. She called it the FLOOD.

    The NPS/ONP gave Frankie three choices on her private property.

    1. Sell you lot to us now for full appraised value.
    2. Sell it to us now, use it for 5 years and we will give you 1/2 of the appraised value.
    3. DO NOTHING and we will take it by immanent domain.

    The White family had enjoyed the ONP private Inholder campsite for 14 years.

    My Dad, George C. Rains Sr. told her not to sell, that the ONP could not take it.

    Their family did not have money to fight. They did not know HOW to fight the ONP.

    They were afraid, they didn’t know what to do, and they sold their site to ONP.

    Frankie said, “I cried and cried, BUT THE ONP LEFT US NO CHOICE, so we sold it to them”

    ————————————————————–

    Jack Del Gussi, John H. Lewis and I created the finest recreational campground facilities the Elwha River has ever known. We subdivided and developed campsites with underground electric power, water system and good roads and restrooms.

    In the course of our development I noticed a small breach through a narrow strip of land on the south of the big island which is owned by the park. I could foresee a lot of damage if something was not done to protect our property below and the Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    I contacted Del Hur Industries to get an estimate on what it would cost to plug the breach and put a small rock dike to prevent further damage to our property and the road.

    After getting an estimate I contacted the park people and they would do nothing to help remedy the situation. I also offered to provide free of cost all rip rap from our rock quarry on Little River.

    The problem was ignored. Finally sometime later the river came up high enlarging the breach, washing out a section of the Olympic Hot Springs Road and cut a channel through our development and took out our bridge……

    To this day they have done nothing to remedy the threat and a good portion of our property was destroyed through their sheer negligence. The National Park has no respect  for private property rights and ownership.

    ———————————————-

    MAR 29, 2017  To this day they have done nothing to remedy the threat to the Olympic Hot Spring Road, our access to our inholder property is gone and a good portion of our property is still being destroyed through their sheer negligence. The National Park has no respect  for private property rights and ownership.

    There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION,

    STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights)

     INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as the UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    Letter to KBC News by Mark Johnson, 4/12/16

    “Well, if I wanted all the people out of Northern California, what would I do?”
    I’d lock up all the natural resources.  I would remove all the infrastructure… like the Klamath dams.

    I would put the people on printed money heroin…and they would get addicted to transfer payments and free government services.

    After some more time went by… I’d have the Klamath National Forest in a quasi wilderness area, I’d have the loggers gone…Get rid of the pesky diggers..the mining community. I’d go after the agriculture community…attempt to eliminate them.  I’d go up stream…get rid of the 4 dams, remove the water inventory and electrical generation for 70,000 homes.  The warm nutrient rich waters from above the dams would not be cleaned by the dreaded green algae.  The nutrient rich without the dams…the water would be warmer down stream, the O2 level less…and the fish kill cycles greater, and deeper.

    Then I’d go to the Klamath Basin…and slowly, surely…eliminate the federal water projects, the potato farmers, the alfalfa farmers,

    I’d make it all a big wetlands area like before the white man.

    Then as a government… I’d be broke…my govt printed money would have no purchasing power. My debt would be so great that I would have to print money to pay the debt which equals inflation.

    The people I tricked with BIA and O and C transfer payments would have no means of support, no raw materials….and no land for wealth creation.

    Those rural people would have to migrate to the cities, or they would have to die early…. like the Native American does on the reservation system.

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    It’s not really politics so much as it is Math.

    Take out enough infrastructure…get a welfare govt like the one we have in the US now……. then you can share with Venzuela:

    Someone else’s choice = your sacrifice
    Posted on the www.klamathbasincrisis.org / KBC News Discussion Forum by Finnious T Fogbottom Tue April 12, 2016
    Over the past 25 years over 800 dams of various sizes have been destroyed in our nation alone. That is a bit scary since one of the big differences between first and third world countries is found in the existence or absence of fully functioning dams. The politically correct World Bank had been busily financing the construction of Third World dams by the way, until there arose too much pressure from their otherwise Green allies. Truly when the ethically protected usage, flow and storage of water is harnessed by and for humankind freedom can have a tendency to abound, when combined with free markets that is. With the availability of resources as such there also comes great opportunity for individual advancement in terms of education, employment, wealth, strength, vitality, health and the pursuit of happiness. That also leads directly to the enhancement of the general fitness, financial soundness, global relevance, unity, security and wellbeing of a nation, from the bottom up.

    On the other hand if a certain sort would like to subversively take control of a nation an obvious place to begin would be to gain despotic, destructive and disruptive control over its waters. Because with that also comes authority over many other things that we can’t live without like food, wealth, jobs, electricity etc. It hasn’t gone without notice that over recent decades there have been many an alarming attempt and success in the movement to drain our citizenry and nation of its wealth, rights, freedom, future, confidence, trust of government, unadulterated history and might. Simultaneously a form of top down centralized constituency free governance has been worming its way into the political landscape of our nation and even the world.

    So, what if there really were dedicated and well funded operations in existence which work tirelessly to undermine capitalism, and with that reshape the balance of local, regional, national and global power? What if their preferred and nearly perfected disruptive mechanism is simply the oppressive manipulation of water, species, rights, equality issues, sea and land policy? What if all of this was falling into place through Marxist inspired radical political correctness and environmentalism, empowered by the tragic consensus, collaboration and support of a manipulated populace which has apocalyptically yet proudly exchanged the truth for a lie? Well, that just may be what is currently taking place near and far.

    Not too long before the seemingly treacherous and unsupported agreement to remove four Klamath River dams was signed (with blatant indifference to voter or congressional approval) it was more than a little disquieting to find out that Dan Keppen, (former head of the Klamath Water Users Association) had met with the Obama Whitehouse and United Nations associates in person to discuss water issues, water policy and resolution templates including the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) etc. That time line may be coincidental, still it is important to consider how many of the KBRA collaboration buzz words are found throughout a UN report titled MANAGING WATER UNDER UNCERTAINTY AND RISK. It is quite revealing to search out (control/F) certain words in that document. There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION, STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights) INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as he UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    I was sad but not astonished as well to see in Keppen’s Herald and News article that he was also happy about the success enjoyed by Klamath Blue Zone programs and projects. Here too rises up the nagging fear that KBZone may be just one more local manifestation of a citizen’s Marxist Manifesto. It does make you wonder for sure when the recent H & N Blue Zone article spewed this: “A community effort …these measures may look like someone coming into town and arbitrarily telling people what they can and can’t do. But he said there comes a time when a community needs to consider how an individual’s decisions impact the entire group… Sometimes, as a society, we have to ask and answer some very hard questions about what is best for all of us…Similarly, he continued, when it comes to health, sometimes we’re going to have to make difficult choices and make individual sacrifices in favor of benefiting a larger population.” It sounds like they would also like to eventually make some UN similar choices for us: choices for our improved healthy happy alternative communal sustainable future. In the end it is all about others answering questions and making choices for us – for the greater good of the greater number of course!

    Sky Lakes Medical Center (for the greater good) is NOW telling us that it is not making Blue Zones like choices for us, yet visitors can no longer buy sugared anything on the hospital premises. It is so nice that we have so many caring people running around close to where we live making “good choices” for we dummies! We dummies who don’t know good from bad, right from wrong, evil from good and on and on. A few more Soviet style consensus councils and we just may be on our way to heaven on earth, and peace and unity without God. Until things literally and predictably go to Hell.

    So, it should go without saying that there is as usual just a whole lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Especially when one considers that no truly conservative politician could ever have anything to do with the Marxist inspired, anti-republic KBRA etc., Blue Zones or the whole mess of tax and spend Citizens for Great Sounding but Eventually Self-Destructive Stuff. At their core one must fully consider the probability that whether by naivety, greed, misdirection, foolishness or malice they share the some of the political leanings as found in the bulk of our nation’s enemies past and present. It is all a receipt for disaster.

    As we discover through inquiry and questions what the candidates are all about and where their roots are fastened, we will then have a good idea of where they are coming from and where they are trying to go, or take us. In the end don’t vote for anyone who will try to get you to agree to sacrifice what you can’t afford to lose to someone who hasn’t earned it, then take you somewhere you don’t want your family, your friends, yourself, community, city, county, state or country, or world to go, let alone become!

    Oh yes, where did that $48,000,000 is misappropriated BOR funds end up? Here’s to a certain sort of upcoming indictment.

    Olympic Hot Springs Road temporary bridge in works; no time set yet to begin construction

    Click here to zoom...

    Rob Ollikainen/Peninsula Daily News
    This section of Olympic Hot Springs Road washed out in a November flood. National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis told U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer that a one-lane bridge would be installed over the washout area in six to eight weeks.

    PORT ANGELES — Funding has been requested and plans are under review for a temporary one-lane bridge over a 60-foot washout near the Elwha Campground on Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    Once plans are approved by such agencies as the Army Corps of Engineers, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Fish and Wildlife, construction would take from six to eight weeks, said Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokeswoman.

    She didn’t know when plans would be approved or when construction would begin.

    The washout has blocked access to the Elwha River Valley west of Port Angeles since November. Olympic Hot Springs Road is closed to vehicles at the Madison Falls trailhead, about a mile north of the washout itself.

    Temporary bridge

    The temporary bridge would be in place for as long as five years before a more permanent structure is built.

    The Elwha Campground, which was severely damaged in fall and winter floods, isn’t expected to be reopened this year, Maynes said.

    The National Park Service has requested emergency funds from the Federal Highway Administration to install a temporary bridge over the washout, National Park Service Director John Jarvis said last week.

    U.S. Rep Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, questioned Jarvis about the status of the road in a House Appropriations Interior Subcommittee hearing on the National Park Service budget Wednesday.

    “We’ve got a lot of private landowners and park users and research scientists and park service staff who are very heavily impacted by the loss of this single access point,” Kilmer said.

    “So I was hoping you could just discuss what the service is doing to expedite repairs to the road and ensure that access is restored as quickly as possible.”

    Said Jarvis: “We expect that to take about six weeks, six to eight weeks, to get that installed.

    “And that will serve — not great — but it will serve access to the landowners that are up that road and our own administrative access. We’ve got park housing, we have a maintenance facility up there and the public access as well.”

    Kilmer represents the 6th Congressional District, which covers the Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas and most of Tacoma.

    Maynes confirmed that a FEW  private landowners have land past the park entrance.

    Kilmer said. “We’ve got a LOT OF  private landowners and park users and research scientists and park service staff who are very heavily impacted by the loss of this single access point” “So I was hoping you could just discuss what the service is doing to expedite repairs to the road and ensure that access is restored as quickly as possible.”
    National Park Service Director John Jarvis said
    “And that will serve — not great — but it will serve access TO THE LANDOWNERS that are up that road and our own administrative access. We’ve got park housing, we have a maintenance facility up there and the public access as well.”
    “These visits do more than provide inspirational, educational and recreational opportunities; in 2014, they drove over $30 billion in economic impact, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs in communities around the country,” he said.

    I sat down to wait for the meeting to start. I showed people the two pictures on the front page of the PDN, with the people around me. I had an real issue with Rep. Kilmer priorities, ignoring the emergency road repair for Olympic National Park tourism and instead promoting an art thing at Fort Warden?

    After a few minutes Judith called me into a side room. Rep. Kilmer and I had a 15 minute conversation on my economic concerns for our community  and his failure to prioritize  and act on the emergency flooding disaster.

    Feb 19, 2016  I did remind Rep. Kilmer, of what an  economic driver tourism is to our community.

    —————————
    $424,000 request
    The park service requested $424,000 for the project, Maynes said.The temporary bridge would be expected to be in use for about five years, she said.“During those five years, we will pursue plans and funding for a longer-term fix,” she said Saturday.Since the road is in an active floodplain, “a longer-term solution will take much larger effort,” she added.

    With a five-year funding bill in place, the National Park Service will work with the highway administration to complete “a major reconstruction on that site,” Jarvis said.

    But he also said that would take years.

    “We’ll be living with that temporary fix for three to five years,” Jarvis said.

    Washed out

    The road washed out when a dry Elwha River side channel was reactivated in a Nov. 17 flood.

    A second flood that occurred Dec. 8 and Dec. 9 caused additional damage to the road and nearby Elwha Campground.

    The damage to the Elwha Campground was extreme, Maynes said.

    “Some picnic tables were moved by the force of the water. Some are buried in silt. It’s unlikely that we will be able to get that open this year,” she said.

    Altair Campground was also damaged in the Nov. 17 flood. It had been closed because of damage done in a December 2014 storm.

    “Our neck of the woods has had a really tough winter,” said Kilmer, a Port Angeles native.

    Pedestrian bridge

    A pedestrian bridge over the side channel has been replaced by a small wooden bridge that can support emergency vehicles.

    Seedlings have been planted along the banks of the surviving road sections to prevent further erosion.

    “I know you’ve been getting a lot of rain up there,” Jarvis told Kilmer.

    “At least we’re getting some snowpack, both in the Cascades, the Olympics and the Sierras this year, which is a good thing.

    “The good thing on the Elwha is that it’s helped flush out all that sediment that was backed up on the rivers,” added Jarvis, referring to the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, a project that began in 2011.

    Kilmer described Olympic National Park as an “extraordinary asset that draws a whole bunch of people to our region.

    “I’m often reminded of just what an economic driver it is, not just in terms of hotel stays and restaurants and things like that, but my grandfather helped pave the road up Hurricane Ridge, so it’s been an extraordinary asset,” Kilmer said.

    The National Park Service system has 410 sites, including 58 national parks.

    The service has recently restored seasonal ranger hiring to peak levels, coordinated more than 400,000 volunteers, completed deferred maintenance projects and expanded partnership through a centennial program, Jarvis said.

    “All of these actions will help sustain our parks for another 100 years,” he told the committee.

    The National Park Service drew a record 307 million visitors in 2015 nationwide, Jarvis said.

    “These visits do more than provide inspirational, educational and recreational opportunities; in 2014, they drove over $30 billion in economic impact, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs in communities around the country,” he said.

  • Olympic National Park Inholders 1970-1973

    Find your park. Tell your Story.

    Things happen that should always be remembered

    (133)  Elwha River Inholder  private Campsites were destroyed inside the Olympic National Park, they are listed below by name and number

    My “inside store” is kind of like the original Grimm’s Brother  fairy tale

    You know the one… It starts off great.. 

    Once Upon A Time in Olympic National Park

    THERE WAS A PRIVATE  ELWHA RIVER RECREATIONAL PARK

    “My Dad, George C. Rains Sr  developed one of the finest recreational campground facilities the Elwha River area has ever known. We subdivided and developed it into campsites with underground electricity, water system, good roads and restroom facilities.”

    And you remember what happens next, the Big Bad Wolf gobbles up the grandmother, swallows her whole and then the wolf eats Little Red Riding Hood..

    Unfortunately (133) Olympic National Park Inholder Campsites were destroyed they are listed by name and number below

    The names 133 people purchasing recreational sites and making payments between 1970-1973 are documented below.

    However the actual number of inholder’s ownership in ONP  may have been 250 or more.

    Many of the Inholder’s  that purchased and lost their Private recreational property in the Elwha River Recreational Park were local families.

    Many of the original purchasers are no longer living. Somebody needs to tell their story.

    Read the names on the list. Was your family one of the many families that lost their recreational campsite due to flooding by ONP  and ended up as a NOT SO WILLING SELLER?

    ——————————————————————

    Frankie White ended up as a NOT SO WILLING SELLER

    This is Frankie’s story given to me in a telephone conversation.

    Frankie was a single parent, she bought, made a small down payment on the recreational lot for she and her son. They spent delightful times together on the Elwha River, as much time as a working mother could afford to spend.

    When the Olympic National Park devastating flooding event started, she was offered an opportunity to sell her property to the park. Frankie still owed a lot of money on her purchase.but when she was first offered an amount of money, she said she did not want to sell, she wanted to wait and see what would happen.

    Hmmm…  Parks willing seller approach, if you sell it to us RIGHT NOW we will give you X amount if you wait until next year the offer will be reduced by $500.00.

    Frankie was afraid,  Was she bullied? Threatened? Intimidated?  Whatever…  Frankie became a NOT SO WILLING SELLER TO THE ONP for the higher amount.

    Dear Ms. Pearl Rains Hewett,
    Thank you for your call this morning regarding access to the Olympic National Park. It is my understanding that you are an “inholder” (owner of private property ) inside the aforementioned NP unit. You asked me about the repairs being done to the road you use for access (Olympic Hot Spring Road). In order to be of further assistance to you. Please send me more information regarding your issue. I would like to know if the road was damaged and if so, when. I would like to know contact on the NPS I can talk. The Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO) program provides funds to Federal Agencies for the repair of damaged roads due to natural event. If an event has been approved for funding and the Olympic Hot Spring Road is part of event, more than likely we have provided some funds for the repairs. However, I would need more information.
    Thank you,

    My understanding from the the Feb 8, 2016 meeting is that there are two specific hold-ups. identified as, the Army Corp of Engineers and a required NOAA consultation under section 7.
    Commissioner Bill Peach, asked if the Olympic Hot Springs Road would be open by the 4th of July?
    In response, both Lisa Turecek, PE Chief of Facilities Management and Brian Winter Elwha River Project Manager answered.
    the Army Corp of Engineers must, be given time to respond, up to 60 days? Because a 100 foot bridge must be built.
    Brian, that tentative plans to proceed shall required NOAA consultation under section 7,
    Commissioner Peach, asked When will the road be reopened to public and private access?
    Lisa’s guesstimated was four months from the time that construction was permitted to start.

    At this point in time I am asking for help from anyone that can expedite the hold-ups, repair the Olympic Hot Springs Roads and trails, and, have public access completed for the 2016 tourist season that starts in late May.

    Olympic National Park effort underway to preserve stretch of Olympic Hot Springs Road near Elwha River washout
    Olympic National Park effort underway to preserve stretch of Olympic Hot Springs Road near Elwha River washout
    OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Crews are trying to preserve what’s left of Olympic Hot Springs Road near a massive washout in the Elwha River Valley, and Olympic National Park officials plan to provide pedestrian access through the area by the end of the month.

    “Downstream from the washout, the bank is beginning to erode near the roadway,” said Barb Maynes, park spokeswoman.

    Crews are making emergency repairs to stabilize the Elwha River bank to save parts of the road that remain, she said.

    Park crews will have to wait until the rainy season is over before they can begin repairing the gaping 60-foot section of Olympic Hot Springs Road that was washed out earlier this winter, Maynes said.

    The road is closed at the park gate at Madison Falls, 1 mile north of the washout.

    A pedestrian trail is being built to bypass the damaged and FLOOD-PRONE AREAS, and it should be open by the end of this month, she said.

    There is no set date for repairs to the road, she said, but the park hopes to have it open with temporary repairs in time for Memorial Day weekend at the end of May.

    The park was approved for a Federal Highway Administration emergency repair grant to make the temporary fixes, Maynes said.

    She said she did not know how much money the park would receive.

    A flood Nov. 17 reactivated a long-dry river channel behind the Elwha Campground, obliterating a section of Olympic Hot Springs Road and inundating the campground with silt and debris.

    A second flood Dec. 8 and Dec. 9 caused additional damage to both the road and campground.

    Engineers are working on both temporary and permanent designs that will have to meet strict environmental standards because the Elwha River is a major salmon-producing stream, Maynes said.

    Currently, park maintenance employees are accessing areas south of the washout via a temporary bridge that spans part of the gap and has to be removed every time conditions indicate the water might rise, she said.

    Park officials are trying to complete temporary repairs by Memorial Day weekend to allow visitors to access the Glines Canyon overlook, several trailheads and the Olympic Hot Springs.

    Rehabilitation plans

    Long-term repairs to the road will be part of a planned large-scale rehabilitation of the aging visitor infrastructure of Elwha Valley roads, trails and campgrounds, Maynes said.

    Park planners expect to begin taking public comment and complete environmental studies on the project in a year or two, after which the park will complete the work, which should leave the area in good shape for visitors for decades, she said.

    Hot springs reopened

    The Olympic Hot Springs — natural hot spring pools located 2.5 miles above the Boulder Creek Trailhead — have reopened.

    The pools were closed in October after Silverdale resident Bruce Gunderson was found dead in one of them.

    An autopsy performed Oct. 30 revealed that the manner of death was an accident and the cause of death was freshwater drowning.

    Park officials kept the pools closed after the death due to the possibility of health risks.

    Once the pedestrian path is established, visitors can hike or bicycle the 10-mile route to the hot springs.

    Campground fates

    Two campgrounds in the Elwha Valley are closed, and only one is likely to reopen soon.

    The silt and debris covering the Elwha Campground will have to be removed and repairs made, Maynes said.

    Once that work is done, the campground is expected to reopen sometime this summer, she said.

    The Elwha River changed its course during a December 2014 flood and removed several Altair Campground campsites as the main channel moved across its historic floodplain.

    “Most of [Altair] is gone,” Maynes said.

    The future use of the remaining portions of the campground is under consideration, she said.

    In other parts of the park, Graves Creek Road in the Quinault area remained closed to cars due to a road washout caused by the same storms that damaged Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    Access to the Enchanted Valley trailhead remains open for hikers, but with a longer walk from cars to the trailhead, Maynes said.

    Grazing Service + General Land Office = Bureau of Land Management

    General Land Office-To handle the rapidly growing public land business,
    Congress created the GLO in 1812. The GLO handled all public land issues, including sales, patents and land entries. Surveyors were sent out with tools of the trade to record in their notebooks all mines, salt licks, salt springs, mill sites, water courses and the quality of the lands. This information helped purchasers and homesteaders make informed decisions about the lands offered.

    Grazing Service- With westward expansion came increases in livestock
    grazing and deteriorating rangelands. Between 1870 and 1900, the number
    of beef cows tripled, and the number of sheep quadrupled. The sheer
    numbers of livestock, combined with drought in the early 1930s, set the
    stage for the development of a new government agency. With the passage of the Taylor Grazing Act in 1934, Congress established the Grazing Service to manage public land grazing

    Bureau of Land Management-On July 16, 1946, the GLO and the Grazing Service merged and became the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) within the Department of Interior. Eventually, the era of homesteaders and land sales passed.

    Today, the BLM manages land under the principle of “multiple use” to allow all citizens the opportunity to use and enjoy public lands.

    In addition, the BLM now has the National Landscape Conservation System-whose mission is to conserve, protect and restore nationally significant landscapes, which include many of the great American western landscapes.

    Original land surveys and settlement records, still managed by the BLM, help tell the rich history of the American West.

    Prepare for a primitive day hike, sack lunch, bottled water, pack it in, pack it out.

    This is an opportunity to visit and walk in a place that may soon be lost to the wilderness.

    This is simply an invitation..

    With so many planned events on Sept. 17, 2011, there is no way for anyone to anticipate how many guests we will have.

    There is a rest room at the small camp ground.

    There is a parking lot at the ONP gate.

    We are planning to have Rains Family Inholder property owners at both the ONP gate and at the entrance road to our inholder property.

    Those who attend will be referred to as invited guests of the Rains family.

    I  commit myself to being at our ONP Inholders property from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011  and  I am extending an invitation to the public to be our guest on our private Inholder property.

    The Rains Family wants to share their beautiful Elwha River property with those who would prefer a walk by the river to a gathering at the Pier to watch TV.

     Go West on Highway 101, turn left up the Olympic Hot Springs Road (just before the Elwha Bridge). The Rains Property is through the ONP gate and about 3 miles up the road on your right.

    Olympic National Park mea culpa: ‘Inholder’ blocked from …

    Peninsula Daily News

    PORT ANGELES — A family with 91-year-old roots in Clallam County was denied vehicle access Saturday onto trust land they own within Olympic National Park.

    Park officials Monday called the incident a misunderstanding.

    Pearl Rains Hewett said Monday that as an “inholder” — an owner of private property within a national park — her sister, Violet Kono of Redmond, should have been allowed to drive Saturday to family property on the Elwha River that lay past a locked gate on Olympic Hot Springs Road, beyond which road construction was taking place.

    Hewett was allowed to drive past the gate Monday after she contacted the Peninsula Daily News and the newspaper inquired about the incident.

    “I would like the national park to be put on notice that you shouldn’t have to go to that extreme to have access to your property,” she said. “Inholders have rights. We pay taxes to Clallam County every year to property on the Elwha.”

    Park Chief Ranger Collin Smith, who was out of town last week, was apologetic.

    “There were some internal communication issues there,” Smith said Monday afternoon.

    “Had I known the road was paved at that point, I would have told [Ranger] Sean [Davis] to let her go through. It was a misunderstanding. Where we made a mistake here is, we should have tried to provide access to them because they’re inholders.”

    Olympic National Park has about 100 inholders mostly at Lake Crescent, Lake Ozette, Lake Quinault and the Oil City area near the mouth of the Hoh River, Smith said.

    Olympic Hot Springs Road will be open to full vehicle access by Wednesday, he added.

    For about three weeks, workers have been repairing the road’s Fisherman’s Corner in preparation for truck traffic generated by the tear-down of the Glines Canyon Dam and its sister edifice, the Elwha Dam, beginning Sept. 17.

    Olympic Hot Springs Road leads to Glines Canyon Dam.

    Traffic will be restricted along the road after Aug. 1 beginning just south of Altair Campground, which will remain open.

    That’s when workers from Barnard Construction Co. Inc. of Bozeman, Mont., will begin traveling the road heavily and staging equipment for the $27 million removal of both dams, intended to restore the Elwha River’s sharply depleted salmon run.

    Hewett said earlier Monday that her sister was told road construction was taking place and that no public vehicles were allowed beyond the gate, Hewett said.

    While Davis was telling the 67-year-old Kono on Saturday morning that the only way she could reach her family property was to hike 2 to 3 miles, a representative of concessionaire Olympic Raft & Kayak and a park biologist unlocked the gate with their own keys and drove through, Hewett said.

    “The worst part was they let a concessionaire up the road, but they won’t let an inholder in,” Hewett said, describing the family-trust property “a very beautiful, special and spiritual place” where family members gather for memorials and the Fourth of July.

    Hewett contended that inholders, as in-park landowners, hold a different legal status than the general public.

    “I think it’s important for us to object to private property rights being violated by anyone, especially when it’s a family that’s lived here for such a long time,” Hewett said.

    Hewett’s grandfather, Osco Rains, (correction George C. Rains Sr) was 6 when he and his family moved to Port Angeles in 1920, Hewett said.

    At one point, the family owned 3,000 acres on the North Olympic Peninsula. They now own 900 acres.

    ACCESS DENIED AND THE REST OF THE STORY

    Access Denied – Olympic Hot Springs Road blockaded and the “rest of the story” – by Pearl Rains Hewett

    Posted 7/26/2011 Access Denied – Olympic Hot Springs Road blockaded and the “rest of the story” by Pearl Rains Hewett

    On June 28, 2011 an article “Access Denied”  with my picture was on the front page of the Peninsula Daily News.

    As Paul Harvey would say, here is “The rest of the story.” for your enjoyment.

    On June 28, 2011 Paul Gottlieb PDN [Peninsula Daily News] called me and asked if I  would meet a photographer at the blockade on the on the Olympic Hot Springs Road, where my sister and her husband had been refused entry,. I said “Sure”  Paul said, “If you both leave now, Chris Tucker will meet you at the gate.”

    I got to the gate first, parked my car and walked over to a little blond guard. I said, “I am an Inholder and I want to go up to my property.”

    She said, “you can’t go in , only people that have business can go through.”

    I said “I have business, I am an Inholder and my property is up the road.”

    The little blond said, “Is your house up there?”

    I said, “No, but, (I saw a black car pull in and park) You see that guy over there? (Chris was walking toward us) He is a photographer from the Peninsula Daily News and he is here to take a picture of you refusing me entry to my property.”

    The little blond looked at Chris and then back at me and said “I have to make a phone call”.

    Chris, had a camera in his hand, we introduced ourselves, I told Chris that I had just been refused entry. We waited about two minutes and the little blond came over and said “You can go right in”.

    Chris asked to take a picture of me in front of the gate, he took 3 or four pictures and then he said, “Now can I have one of you, not smiling?”

    It was a fleeting victory, entry was only made possible by the power of the press.

    See the following if you are interested in the rest, of the rest of the story.

    1944 OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK CONSPIRACY EXPOSED

    The notarized document  “Conspiracy Exposed” was written on Oct. 8,1992 by George C. Rains Sr. when he was 77 years old.

    The referenced “Conspiracy” was exposed in a conversation at Sol Duc Hot Springs between the acting Olympic National Park Superintendent Preston Macy and my father George C. Rains Sr. in 1944.

    “George, I should not tell you this, but the long range plan of the National Park Service is to take the whole Olympic Peninsula over and put it in the Olympic National Park and move everyone off the Olympic Peninsula.”

    The proof of this conspiracy has and is being proven in the step by step acquisition of private and DNR land by the National Park Service, as this is being written and during the last 19 years from 1992 to 2011.

    The nine page summary includes some of the 48 year history of Clallam County from 1944 to 1992 and is his proof of the conspiracy.

    It’s a good read from a historical standpoint and a cautionary statement to the citizens of Clallam County.

    Could this happen to Clallam County by imminent domain, isolation, regulation, restriction and/or economic starvation?

    “SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER” is a dam shame

    Tell your story, things happen in the Olympic National Park,  should always be remembered.

    Port Angeles, WA – Long-time local invites public as guests to gather on inholder property for a ‘time of remembrance’ for two lakes to be lost to dam destruction

    Saturday, September, 17, 2011 Elwha Dams removal threatens family properties

    by Lois Krafsky-Perry
    Citizen Review Online

    Photos by Lois Krafsky-Perry

    Clallam County, WA – As a large Elwha Dam removal celebration with a reported 400 invited guests was being held on a lower part, of the river, Pearl Rains Hewett and her family held an informal, by invitation only, memorial gathering at their Elwha River property located off Highway 101, west of Port Angeles, up the old Olympic Hot Springs Road. Approximately 50 guests gathered on Saturday, September 17th, at the Rains property for the all-day event. King 5 TV also attended and did an interview with Ms. Rains-Hewett.

    It was necessary to stop at the ranger station and give information and name to Lyn B, the ranger. He said it was not required to pay or show a pass. However, the approach lane had been blocked off, making it necessary to make the stop there.

    Congressional (6th District) candidates Jesse Young and Bob Sauerwein attended the Saturday event, as well as Port Commissioner Jim McEntire, who is running for Clallam County Commissioner District 1.

    The event was in remembrance and celebration of the Rains family’s father George Rains Sr. and his influence, with history of their Clallam County properties, located on the Elwha River.

    Rains-Hewett, concerned for the future of her children and grandchildren, is making a plea to save their river property. The family is concerned about future destruction or their property, which is intended to go to the family members who will be inheriting their properties.

    The mother of three also has ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was joined at the river with her brother George Rains Jr. and sister Violet Rains Kono, Windy Baulden, as well as Pearl’s daughter Joni Howard, who helped with the event. Several other family members also attended.

    When the upper dam was opened in 1976, it flooded the Rains property. Now the threat by dam removal has risen again, and Pearl wants the federal government to consider their plight. She has documented events and is willing to talk to anyone who will listen, on behalf of her family, as well as other land and river owners. She has done much research and is networking with others, who are having similar problems.

    There are many faceted problems facing her and her family. She has documented information from her father, who recorded lists of original in-holders. Many of them are also suffering the threat of land and river tragedies in the future, if the release of water and silt is not stopped somehow.

    When asked, ” What do you want?” she replied that she wants her family and other property owners in Clallam County to have the right to own and keep their own properties.

    Approximately $325 million federal tax dollars has been spent by taxpayers on the Elwha Dams removal.

    There are also major threats to private property owners being felt across the United States, with fear of additional dam destruction and the loss of private property ownership that would cause.

    —————————————————–

    back to  Sep 11, 2011 “SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER”  was an invitation

    ACCESS DENIED it would be more damaging for ONP to deny access to an Inholder, than to let us in.

    Their is no law that denies my right to invite guests to my private property.

    The sign inside the ONP, on the entrance road, at the gate to our property, states for property owners and guests.

    ONP may try to deny us access for security reasons, using court intervention.

    How can ONP legally deny Inholders and their guests access to private property?

    If ONP has security issues they can barricade the Olympic Hot SpringsRoad beyond our Inholder access road.

    The one thing I am sure of is, on Saturday Sept. 17, 2011, I would rather be walking our beautiful Elwha River property than go down to the Pier to watch a big screen TV, listen to a band and dance.

    This is a time to remember, walk, talk, enjoy the beauty of the day and make plans for our future.

    Photographs? The Elwha River is beautiful, deer, elk, moss covered trees, an occasional spotted owl and perhaps even a sighting of the endangered marbled Merlette.

    We are miles away from the event at the Dam.

    It is my belief that when the Dams are removed, there won’t be any reason to maintain the Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    With the Olympic Hot Springs Road gone “Access will not only be denied, it will be impossible”.

    I believe the ONP portion of the Elwha River Valley will become an inaccessible “Wilderness Area” before the spring of 2012.

    I for one, am not satisfied with watching the invited 400 celebrate our loss on a big screen at the pier.

    If we are refused vehicle entry, we may be taking a little longer walk.

    If I am denied access, I will be at the ONP gate.

    I look forward to seeing you.

    THE ELWHA RIVER VALLEY – WHAT USED TO BE

    OLYMPIC HOT SPRING RESORT

    This Public recreational facility, on public land was destroyed and returned to wilderness for the benefit of “We the People” by Olympic National Park.

    It was one of the finest public recreational facilities on the Olympic Peninsula..

    It was originally built and maintained by Everett and Harry Schoefell and family.

    His resort business was very successful for many years. Long leases and plans could be made to maintain and improve his business. When the Olympic Nation Park put the squeeze on Harry Schoefell by giving a lease for only one year at a time. This put a squeeze on improvement programs and you had nothing certain to make improved facilities and maintenance work for the future.

    I was told by Harry Schoefell that all he received in the end from ONP was $10,000.00 for all of his years of work.

    NOW AND THEN OLYMPIC HOT SPRING RESORT

    The resort was abandoned and left to deteriorate, eventually torn down and the road leading to it was removed  by ONP. This Public recreational facility, on public land was destroyed and returned to wilderness for the benefit of “We the People” by Olympic National Park.

    There used to be an unmaintained trail to what was left of the resort, 35 years ago, I took my two nieces on a hike to Olympic Hot Springs.

    All that was left were two small pools of steaming mineral water with several naked hikers lounging on logs. The area around the pools was contaminated with human excrement.

     I never went back, is the trail to the Olympic Hot Springs still there?

     I Pearl Rains Hewett, have living memory, of when I was a girl, visiting OLYMPIC HOT SPRINGS RESORT with  my family and swimming in the pool of mineral water.

    I developed one of the finest recreational campground facilities the Elwha River area has ever known. We subdivided and developed it into campsites with underground electricity, water system, good roads and restroom facilities.

    NOTE: This campground area is where we will gather at the river.

    ( Private recreational campground developments are no longer allowed in Clallam County)

     In the course of the development I noticed a small breach through a narrow strip of land on the south end of the big island which is owned by the Park (ONP). I could foresee a lot of damage if something was not done to protect the property below and the Olympic Hot Springs Road. I contacted Del Hur Industries to get an estimate on what it would cost to plug the breach and put in a small rock dike to prevent further damage to our property and the road.

    After getting the estimate I contacted the Park (ONP) people, and they would do nothing to help remedy the situation. I also offered to provide free from cost all of the rip rap from our rock quarry on Little River.

    The problem was ignored. Finally some time later the river came up high enlarging the breach and washing out a section of the Olympic Hot Springs Road, and cut a channel through our development and took out our bridge.

    The Olympic Hot Springs Road had to be rebuilt by moving it to higher ground on the hillside. At a later date when I was in the area after the road was rebuilt, I noticed men working with a drilling outfit on the east side of the new road. Federal highway crews were doing the work and testing the fault area above the Olympic Hot Springs Road. They informed me that if the rock dike was not build that to keep the river in its original channels, more of the area east of the road would slip into the river. They informed me that the whole hillside for a great distance up the hill was  nothing but a fault ready to sink into the river if the problem was not corrected.

    To this day they (ONP) has done nothing to remedy the threat and a good portion of our property was destroyed through their (ONP) sheer negligence. The National Park Service has no respect for private property ownership and rights.

    Summer 1976 documented by Pearl Rains Hewett personal account

    My two sons, Delane R. Hewett, Gregory W. Hewett  and I were going to spend the entire summer on my mother’s recreational lot on the Elwha River.  In a beautiful mobile home with a large windowed sunroom attached. Even after the wide spread damage to the recreational area, we still had water and electricity. The extended members of the Rains family were enjoying a carefree summer, the boys fished, sat around the bonfire, hiked, explored and enjoyed an the enchanted ambiance of nature.

    There were occasional sudden releases of water from the Dam that created high water on the river. It concerned me, I reported it to the ONP, we were living out there and we should be notified.

    SUMMER 1976 NOTHING PERSONAL?

    I woke up in the middle of the night to the roaring sound of rushing water, I went to the back door and the water was running over two feet high up onto the steps of the mobile home. I immediately woke up the boys, “We have to get out of here”. In the dark we grabbed what belongs we could fit in the car and drove away. This can be Documented by Sandy Rains, we woke her up and found shelter at her house on that horrendous night  and stayed at she and my brother, George C. Rains Jr. home until we found a rental.

    The entire mobile home and sunroom, where my son’s and I were sleeping, was washed away. The only thing remaining of our private Inholder’s development was the concrete slab and the electrical box.

    Sep 17, 2011 – Invitation to the Elwha River 9/17 … This weekend the destruction of the dams on the Elwha River will be … “Shall We Gather at the River“.

    In this Issue:
    * Invitation to the Elwha River 9/17
    * Agenda 21 – Why Should You Care?
    This weekend the destruction of the dams on the Elwha River will be “celebrated” in
    Port Angeles. There are many differing opinions as to the reasoning behind the removal of the dams and the potential benefits or devestation that it will cause. The Peninsula Daily News has posted the “celebration” events scheduled for Saturday.
    It is also note worthy to share with you an invitation by Pearl Rains Hewett, an Olympic
    National Park inholder, to gather one more time at the banks of the Elwha before the
    dams are removed. Please see invitation below. Seattle TV stations, King 5 News
    and channel 9 have contacted Mrs. Hewett to cover the event.
    “Shall We Gather at the River”
    Saturday, September 17, 2011
    9:00 am – 5:00 pm
    The public is invited to be our guest at the
    Rains Family Olympic National Park inholders property
    Located on the Olympic Hot Springs Road
    The Rains Family wishes to share their beautiful Elwha River property with those who
    would prefer a walk by the river to a gathering at the Pier to watch TV.
    Prepare for a primitive day hike, sack lunch, bottled water, pack it in, pack it out.
    This is an opportunity to visit and walk in a place that may soon be lost to the
    wilderness.
    This is simply an invitation..
    With so many planned events on Sept. 17, 2011, there is no way for anyone to
    anticipate how many guests we will have.
    There is a rest room at the small camp ground.
    There is a parking lot at the ONP gate.
    We are planning to have Rains Family inholder property owners at both the
    ONP gate and at the entrance road to our inholder property.
    What is an “inholder” in the Olympic National Park?
    An inholder is any person that owns private property located inside of the park.
    The property is in Clallam County and property tax are paid to Clallam County. According to the Peninsula Daily front page story “Access Denied” dated June 28, 2011, the
    re are only 100 inholders left in Clallam County.
    This will be a time of remembrance of what used to be -Two of the finest public recreational areas on the Olympic Peninsula Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell
    I look forward to seeing you there,
    Pearl Rains Hewett
    Trustee George C. Rains Sr. Estate

    The Civilian Conservation Corps
    Olympic NP: Historic Resource Study (Chapter 5)
    Camp Elwha. Among the most active CCC camps within the present Olympic National Park was Camp Elwha, located on a gently sloping hillside several hundred yards south of the present Elwha Ranger Station. As one of the first CCC camps established on the north Olympic Peninsula, the arrival of the “forest army” on the Elwha River aroused great interest among local residents. On 10 June 1933 the Port Angeles Evening News devoted headline space and several columns to describing the establishment of the Elwha Camp, known as F-17:
    Two hundred and twenty strong, the 936th company Civilian Conservation Corps of the United States is in camp on “My Rose” creek up the Elwha canyon, within a stone’s throw of the soldiers’ bridge—and taking part in the greatest single government venture these parts have glimpsed since spruce division days of the world war. . . . In a tented city now, the “new forestry army” is rapidly completing a modern and elaborate camp headquarters in a clearing between Griff and My Rose creeks. On the site, 100,000 board feet of lumber is rapidly taking shape in the form of barracks, headquarters buildings, infirmary, dining hall, store room, camp exchange, etc., and District Forester Vallad announced today that construction would also begin immediately on a bunkhouse, warehouse and oil storage plant for the regular Forest Service (PAEN 1933, 10 June).
    The work program outlined for both the main Elwha Camp and the side camp at Slab Camp in the hills southeast of Port Angeles included the construction of roads from the Elwha Ranger Station to Hayes River (on the Elwha River); from Danz Ranch at the forest boundary to Deer Park lookout, to Ennis Creek Ranger Station, and then to the Lost Mountain Road; and from the Little River Road to Ennis Creek Ranger Station. Work plans also called for the widening and straightening of the Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs Road plus the improvement of several campgrounds (PAEN 1933, 10 June).
    A month later, in mid July, the tents at the Elwha CCC Camp were gone and the headquarters for the 180-man company had taken on the look of permanence. Added to the original cluster of camp buildings were four 104 x 22 foot barracks structures, a mess hall, an administration building, a bathhouse with a “Niagara Falls” shower and ancillary workshops and storage buildings. Road projects were also proceeding with haste. By mid July, one and one-half miles of road were completed to Glines Canyon, and road crews were pushing toward Heart O’the Hills. The local press noted, “The road jobs now being carried forward by the CCC crews in the Elwha forest district will effect improvements of vital importance to [the] protection of Olympic timber from fire” (PAEN 1933, 19 July).
    The morale of the first recruitment of Elwha CCC enrollees was exceptionally high. According to journalistic accounts, every member of the fledgling camp claimed that “Elwha camp has the finest crew of any in the country” (PAEN 1933, 19 July). In the early months of operation, there were reportedly few withdrawals; the men were healthy and spirits exuberant. One reason for this initial good spirit at the Elwha Camp may be attributed to the high percentage of enrollees from Clallam County, Seattle, and Bellingham, Washington. These men were fairly familiar and comfortable with the surroundings (PAEN 1933, 19 July). Unlike many CCC camps across the country that consisted of men transported great distances to their place of assignment, the early Elwha CCC camp was comprised of men almost exclusively from western Washington.
    At the end of the first six month recruitment period, the esprit de corps continued to remain high as demonstrated by the great percentage of reenlistments and the reported accomplishments of the company. In late September 1933, the Port Angeles Evening News stated:
    What is believed to be a probable record for Civilian Conservation Corps units in Washington is reported from the C.C.C. Camp on the Elwha river, where 91 per cent of the present force has re-enrolled for the second six month’s work period starting in October. . . . This is [sic] an exceptional mark! It indicates how the C.C.C. men and boys of the Elwha feel toward their camp and the opportunity the corps has given them to earn their living and help their families financially, in addition, corps leaders feel (PAEN 1933, 21 September).
    Road building projects, which was to be the major thrust of Camp Elwha’s energies, continued unabated. By mid September 1933, a five-mile section of “truck trail” was completed up the Elwha River to Wolf Creek. A second major project involving road connections with the CCC Slab Camp/Danz Ranch, was likewise pushing forward (PAEN 1933, 21 September). Far from any roads, the CCC undertook the construction of a four-horse, shake-sided barn at Elkhorn Ranger Station during the summer of 1933 (UW 1934, 20 August).
    By early 1934, twenty-two miles of road were completed by the Elwha CCC crews. A small crew was about to begin widening the road to Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs. Fifty men, still located at the Danz Ranch side camp, worked on roads to Deer Park and to Ennis Creek. A newly established side camp at Heart O’the Hills had thirty-five men engaged in building a thoroughfare from Heart O’the Hills to Coleman’s Ranch on the Little River. The road building projects accomplished by the crews from Camp Elwha aimed at providing the Forest Service with “a continuous roadway from the Elwha River to Slab Camp and the Deer Park region by way of Little River, Mount Angeles and Ennis creek” (PAEN 1934, 6 January). New telephone connections that eventually followed this route, plus the roads themselves, were principally for fire protection purposes.
    At the outset of 1934 other projects, in addition to the construction of roads, were in progress or planned. These projects included the installation of a water and light system at the Elwha CCC Camp, and the construction of a new Ennis Creek Guard Station on the Mount Angeles Road near Heart O’the Hills. In addition, work on public campgrounds on the Elwha River at Lake Mills, Whiskey Bend and Altaire, was planned (PAEN 1934, 6 January).
    Civilian Conservation Corps camps typically were located and relocated depending on the priority of work projects in a particular geographic area. Under the direction of the Forest Service, CCC camps and side camps on the Olympic National Forest were moved on several occasions during the 1930s. One year after the establishment of CCC Camp Elwha, orders were issued to abandon the campsite and relocate to a site seven and one-half miles north of Humptulips in the southern end of the Olympic Peninsula. (CCC Camp Snider, west of Lake Crescent, and Camp Twin, on the Strait of Juan de Fuca coast, west of Port Angeles, also shifted their companies in 1934.) While the corpsmen at Elwha made preparation for their move to Humptulips

    in May, other CCC crews from the Louella CCC Camp near Sequim, took over completion of the road to Deer Park (PAEN 1934, 3 April). In recognition of the efforts of the CCC in completing the winding Deer Park Road, it became known as “The Highway of the CCC” (Carroll 1973, 103).
    The phase out of CCC Camp Elwha was only temporary. In late September 1934 official announcement came from the Forest Service regional office in Portland, Oregon, that the abandoned but intact Elwha Camp (as well as the Snider and Twin Camps) would be restored to activity in October that year. During the winter months of 1934 and 1935, the Elwha CCC Camp was among fifteen National Forest Service camps in the state of Washington (PAEN 1934, 24 September).
    For three years in the late 1930s Camp Elwha was used only at intervals as a small side camp (PAEN 1937, 16 July). Only sporadically CCC corpsmen continued to undertake projects on Forest Service land in the vicinity of the Elwha River drainage.

    In the spring of 1935 “improvements” were made to both the Elwha and Altaire public campgrounds. Betterments at these two campgrounds included work on roads, trails, camping spots, the installation of water pipes, playground equipment, horse-shoe courts for adults, and the construction of sturdy, open-sided community kitchens.

    The Port Angeles Evening News exuded enthusiasm in its description of the improvements at Altaire Campground made by the CCC: “There’s a splendid community kitchen, of rustic design, with a concrete floor and two 54-inch stoves built of rock and cement. There are long tables beside the kitchen and about the grounds are 17 tables and sufficient stoves, all constructed of stone, to take care of as many parties as the tables accommodate” (PAEN 1935, 27 March).
    The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens, in 1983, are the only two remaining CCC structures of this type in Olympic National Park. Built of natural peeled logs, shakes and masonry, the rustic materials and careful proportioning of these structures blend well with their immediate natural surroundings.

    The Elwha and Altaire community kitchens are representative examples of rustic style architecture, which became a hallmark of the CCC throughout the country (Throop 1979, 58).
    When a large contingency of CCC enrollees transferred from Camp Snider several miles west of Lake Crescent, to Camp Elwha in the spring of 1937, additional campground development was undertaken at Olympic (Boulder Creek) Hot Springs, Deer Park and Ennis Creek, at the base of Mount Angeles.

    In addition CCC crews made further improvements to the Olympic Hot Springs Road

    and the Hurricane Ridge Road. Work crews at Deer Park, an Elwha side camp, pursued work on a new ski run and completed an addition to the Deer Park Camp building to accommodate winter ski parties (PAEN 1937, 21 April; 16 July).
    During the CCC’s tenure at Camp Elwha several changes and additions were made by corpsmen to the existing Forest Service Elwha Ranger Station buildings. Eleven buildings stood at the ranger station site at the time the CCC established their camp nearby in 1933. Among the first projects undertaken by the Elwha CCC enrollees was the construction of a porch on the main ranger station building (PAEN 1933, 19 July). Two years later, in 1935, the ranger station was moved slightly, an addition was constructed and landscaping around the ranger station completed (PAEN 1935, 27 March). During the mid 1930s, corpsmen from the Elwha Camp worked on other projects at the ranger station. On Griff Creek, separating the CCC camp from the ranger station, CCC men built a water wheel to furnish electricity to the ranger station office and ranger residence (PAEN 1934, 21 March). Near the ranger station office, an incinerator was constructed for burning refuse from the CCC camp and public campgrounds in the area. The erection of the gas, oil and grease rack building in the utility area represented the largest outlay of CCC manpower and money at the Elwha Ranger Station (PAEN 1935, 27 March). It is the only building built totally by CCC labor in the ranger station complex that stands on its original site. The decorative pine tree design, used throughout the nation as the logo of both the Forest Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps, is cut out of boards on the porch and at the upper gable ends of this building (Throop 1979, 42). It symbolizes and serves as a constant visual reminder of the contribution of the CCC to the Elwha Ranger Station.
    In addition to visible structural changes completed at the Elwha Ranger Station and elsewhere, the construction and maintenance of roads, and the development of campground facilities in forests on the north Olympic Peninsula, Forest Service Camp F-19 on the Elwha River planned and executed numerous other projects between 1933 and 1938.

    Elwha corpsmen constructed and maintained trails, built bridges, erected signs and markers, conducted surveys, constructed fences and guard rails, laid and maintained telephone lines, built parking areas and parking overlooks, razed “undesirable” structures, suppressed fires and conducted field plantings (NARS:RG 95 1934, 1 June; 1937, 6 August; ca. 1938 n.d.).

    The exact geographic locations of many Camp Elwha projects are not always readily identifiable and, in fact, much of their work has been obliterated over the years. However, the overall effect of the various CCC projects undertaken by the Elwha Camp is very much a part of the overall development of recreational use in certain areas in the northern part of Olympic National Park.
    The work of the Elwha CCC Camps is not unique but, in fact, is representative of the kinds of projects pursued by several other work camps supervised by the National Forest Service on the Olympic Peninsula. Prior to the 1938 creation of Olympic National Park, other CCC main camps and side camps located on Forest Service land around the Peninsula likewise stimulated recreational activity in areas now contained in the Park.
