We have two female wranglers right now, Kellie and Chelsea, and they decided to plan a whole evening around this story and finally solve the mystery of who killed Helen. Have any of you ever been to a "Murder Mystery" party? We had the best time!!! On this particular night, we did not have any guests, so we were able to do it in our dining room. We each dressed up as a different character and competed as tables. We gathered clues throughout the dinner (even the menu was part of the mystery) and then made our accusations at the end of the meal. These particular girls are so creative and are so gifted at organizing fun events for our staff and this night proved no different, so thank you, Kellie and Chelsea for serving the staff so well!

These nights are the memorable ones. When I was a Lost Valley staff girl, it was the spontaneous bear hunts, jam sessions in the dining room, and random dance parties in the girls' bunk house that I remember. I am just thankful that our staff still have no cell phone coverage, no television, and they still live an hour and a half from civilization. And what's even more amazing they don't seem to mind. I have learned to appreciate the simplicity of our lives, and even though all of you out there in the world of instant communication hate that we don't have cell phones, here in the valley we adjust and learn to do without. Instead, we get to enjoy solving a murder of a make-believe person whose remains are supposedly buried under a rock...memorable, right?
