Back to the Very Beginning

Recently I received some old family slides from my aunt Martha. We haven't yet looked at all of them, but this gem was in one of the carousels we have viewed. We believe this was taken in 1947, the first year the Roby family owned the Lodge. Martha remembers that they took their truck up the old road before it was closed to vehicles. She recalls being amazed at how slowly it crawled up Crankcase Grade in its lowest gear.

That's my grandmother, Kathryn, with her first three kids bundled up in the back of the truck; Kib, Jim, and Martha. Click on the image to see it full size.
