Years later, Pandapas opened the pond the public.
He says THAT was a bad decision, considering the amount of trash people used to leave behind.
Then in 19-83, Pandapas sold the land to the Jefferson National Forest for 100- thousand dollars, with the understanding that the forest service would make improvements.
Most recently, the forest service re- located some 14 miles of trails, and is even working on a handicapped- accessible path around the pond.

The pond is stocked with bass and trout, to the delight of fishermen of all ages.
And some people just come here for a quiet nap in the sunshine...
Even though the area is well- utilized, the forest service keeps it clean thanks to help from Boy Scout troops, local bike clubs and local senior citizens.

These days, the 83-year-old's health doesn't permit him to come back here very often-- it's been three years since his last visit.
But it's easy to see that he takes great pleasure in knowing OTHERS are enjoying the peaceful spot HE discovered so many years ago.
