1. Converse Basin Grove Marker
I built this marker myself with very little help. It is 50 plus miles from home and being an undertaker with odd hours it was hard to get a work crew together. The Forest Service Super. and I could never get together to pick a spot for the monument. Finely he told me to pick a spot and he would be there for the dedication, he was pleased with the placement. I check it at least once a year. A Clamper stoneman did the lettering in black granite for me. For sure there are Clamper memory items in the base.
