Lloyd Smith’s Earliest Crater Lake Photos

Lloyd began working as a seasonal ranger at Crater Lake in 1959 on maintenance. Since then, he has worked every summer but one, 1964, when he was at Rocky Mountain National Park. He returned to Crater Lake partly because his brother was a Crater Lake summer seasonal, too. Larry started at Crater Lake in 1961, missed the summer of 1963, and has been back every summer except 1976 since then.

Over the years the brothers have held virtually every job possible – trail maintenance, campground ranger, north entrance ranger, firewood cutter, pit poilet digger-cleaner, dispatcher, seasonal supervisor, patrol ranger, interpreter.
