August 23, 2014 (Mount Laguna)--See the past come alive in this re-enactment of life in the Laguna mountains, going back in time to before the early 1900s. Visit with Native Americans, surveyors, turn-of-the-(last) century mountain men and rugged cowboys of the Campo Cattle Company. Meet the first Cleveland Forest Ranger on the Descanso District, and relive the travels of a 1908 pioneer family from Imperial Valley.
This year, Living History is dedicated to long-time “Mountain Man” George Cole, who recently passed away and his wife, Mary, who has been involved in Living History for many years. Both were active in many areas of LMVA.
In addition, the event celebrates Smokey the Bear’s 70th birthday at the same time. He, too, has been a part of Living History all these years.
