This is one of my favorite pictures of dad. Maybe partly because it's so mysterious to me. I'm not sure where it was taken - looks like the Owyhee canyon area, possibly Jarbidge. I don't know, but it looks like someplace I would love to be. The man with dad was one of his best friends from Fish and Game, Jerry Theissen. It doesn't look like they were working because they aren't in uniform, but dad never went camping unless he was working. He always said he got enough of sleeping of the ground from work. So, what were they doing and where were they?
But what puzzles me the most is the quote that he wrote on the picture when he gave it to Jerry. I wish I knew exactly what he meant...
"If there is a future for wild things, then it is the burden of those who have reached farther than me, to save them for the rest of us. It will be done by those whose convictions were forged in campfires,
