The new 47" flat screen display and blu-ray player are a big hit in the visitor center.

In the early 1980s Dave and his family lived at Bridgeport in the rented house that is today's 
Visitor Center. He remembers swimming in Kentucky Creek and in the South Yuba River, playing 
in the Barn, shooting rifles and attending Pleasant Valley School.

The day before the Spring Festival, Dave Taylor presented Ranger Jeremy McReynolds
with this picture of the bridge at Jeremy's going-away party (to a promoted position at Marshal Gold SHP).
