On this day in Mendocino historyโ€ฆ

June 23, 1926 – The Camp Fire Girls returned to Mendocino from their camping trip on Big River. They had spent two weeks camping near the Lumber Companyโ€™s Lower Ranch.

The longest hike taken was up the river to Two-Log. Each girl carried her own food and blankets. After an invigorating swim at Two-Log, the girls cooked supper over an open camp fire. The next morning, the girls hiked back from Two-Log to their camp fighting off wood ticks and blackberry brambles.

โ€œThe girls all agreed they had a splendid time and the eats – well, they couldnโ€™t be beat.โ€
