So I'm still working on catching up my blog. It's been a crazy summer, with trying to get my daughter of to college, trying to reorganize my house into more usable daycare space, and finding out our eight year old is diabetic. We've had a lot going on. So one evening we took a break and went to the CCC Ponds. According to the Bureau of Land Management website, "The ponds are named for the Civilian Conservation Corps, a New Deal program created by Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930’s to create jobs for young men and women following the Depression. The focus of the CCC was on the preservation of natural resources through various construction and improvement projects to increase access and enjoyment of public lands."
