Ranger Bill was present to see the original sign installed, passing away not long after that ceremony.
Recreation and Parks had stopped making engraved wood signs for the most part at that time, so the first sign had letter decals that recently were failing, peeling and falling off.
The new sign has been engraved like the old style signs and should last decades with proper care.
Park Ranger badge #3 - and another blossoming legend (although he'll deny it), Capt. Albert Torres - made this happen.
