Dear Editor:

Thank you for your great little paper and all the historical photos.

I recognize this photo (January 29th Historical Lens) of the Lake of the Hanging Glaciers from our family collection because of the unique boat.

Cant identify anyone with any certainty, though the man on the right could be my great-grandfather Walter Nixon, a local guide and outfitter in the early part of the 20th century.

I know he loved to build raft/boats anytime he set up his base camp near a lake or pond so he could get to the fish, and we have other photos of him on the water or carving giant paddles with an axe. I dont know where the name Lorelie came from; not a family name though.
