I remember Ranger Bill Jones from our camping trip last summer at Big Meadows. His genuine kindness and patience for children shined through immediately during his Junior Ranger program. So, I was happy to see Ranger Bill the first Friday we stayed at Loft Mountain. I think the expression on his face while showing my 8 year old a bear foot print communicates how much he likes what he is doing.
Plus, Ranger Bill sang the "I Met a Bear" song. Once we got back to the car, I realized we had this song on one of our cds and we listened to it many times with new enthusiasm as we drove Skyline Drive.....but I still like Ranger Bill's rendition of the song better:
