Dad took me and the other kids here in the early 90's. I don't think we started at Warren, though... We took a boat down the river and a raft for part. Then we rode up on horseback. I remember shooting his .44 magnum when we got to the lookout.

I also recall fishing (quite successfully!) at a decent sized lake somewhere out here. I was too young to be able to tell you where, though! I'd love to retrace these steps someday!

I think anyone would have considered my dad a real mountain man out here at some point (he was a hunting guide around 1970).
