Wig Wam - BBRSP Date Unknown.
« on: August 05, 2006, 10:35:53 PM »
Some kind of a wig wam or indian shelter constructed at BBRSP sometime back in the 90's.  Shelter is no longer there.  From what I understand, it was constructed by the rangers and staff as a demonstration.  Was located not far from the big Ranch House near a spring.
