Narrative
In an e-mail to Museum staff in September 2017, Mark Curry wrote: "It would have been September of 1982. We took a hike on the mountain to Crater Lake and I found it on the level section leading to the lake. I remember it was a stunning fall day and the dog was snuffling about for voles."
