Crawford Mountains, Bear River, Randolph Valley, and Percy Harold Rex.

Cousin Nancy has been out and about with her camera this summer. She posted this picture and some other great pictures of the Bear River and Randolph Valley on her blog here.

Percy Harold Rex
30 Sep 1889 – 20 Mar 1977

Remember the story of Percy Harold Rex and his brothers running into wolves on their way home from a Christmas Dance in Randolph practically a century ago?

Nancy’s picture above of the bridge crossing the swollen Bear River marks the spot. Her other pictures from atop the Crawford Mountains, show the Bear River flooding the fields below.

The pictures are beautiful Nancy, thanks so much for sharing them with us.

Picture from Helen Rex Frazier collection.
