This photograph of a Kootenay National Park road maintenance crew relaxing on the porch of a log cabin near Hawk Creek in the park was taken in June 1945 by Ray Crook, who was then the grader operator. The four men standing were conscientious objectors; the foreman was Wally Lautrop, who is holding the dog; to his right is John Wells, the driver; and standing is Jim Long, the cook.
