A Lesson From The Ghost Town Of Friars Gulch

High in the Sierra Mountains is the legendary ghost town of Friars Gulch.

“What happened to this town,” asked the students of their professor. “It’s simple,” she replied.

“At one time Friars Gulch was in the middle of a dense forest. But because of the high altitude, the winter time was and is almost unbearably cold.“

“Year after year the townspeople chopped down trees to burn for firewood.”

“But as they did, they didn’t plant new trees believing nature would provide. They just went farther out to chop down more trees until all the trees were gone and the people were left in a place too cold to live.”

“The lesson is to be environmentally sensitive. To do less will eventually create an uninhabitable place.”
