Mary Ellen Gilliland did a wonderful job sharing Summit County history and lore today. About 50 of us hiked up the Argentine North Fork Trail to BML. After lunch (it was really good), Mary Ellen shared colorful stories about natural and human history in the area. Tales of old timers made it clear that unique characters are not just limited to the ski industry. We learned about mining riches and mining scams. I threw in an A-Basin story or two. A good day was had by all.
