Article in the Herald of an upcoming book:
Two women, a generation apart, united by indomitable spirits

Quote:
Garda Fogg hiked and climbed in the Cascade Range in the early part of the 20th century. Later in her life she became known as the unofficial mayor of Monte Cristo, having a summer cabin and much influence in that nearly abandoned mining town.

Courtney Bell came here after a 1963 kayak trip from Lake Champlain in Canada to the Gulf of Mexico with her friend, Chris Cunningham. Their partnership ended, Courtney took up residence for a while in an abandoned cabin in Monte Cristo. Not long after that, she met her future husband, Buck Wilhite, and lived with him for two years at that beautiful townsite

Got a few letters from Garda Fogg I've kept over the years.  My folks were part owners in Monte Cristo Resort during the 1960's and Garda would write us asking what we planned to do and give us a few of her own ideas.   Very independent lady but very nice.
