The Ghost of Treasure Hill
by Betty Orr

On Treasure Hill
A ghostly wind
Rattles slat and sage.
And every silvered
Sash and door,
Is sanded smooth with age.

                        Who traveled here?
                        Who wept at night?
                        Who bore the dreadful breeze?
                        Who burned for ore?
                        Who drilled at night?
                        Who prayed on trembling knees?

On Treasure Hill
The flowers stay small
Nestled near the stones.
And scattered on a
Windswept spot,
Rock mounds now cover bones.

                        Who watched from here?
                        Who mourned a child?
                        Who swayed against the wind?
                        Who counted days,
                        And then, the hours,
                        The stage that rattled in?

On Treasure Hill
I sifted soil.
I found an earring part.
I found a dish, a
Broken toy.
I guess a broken heart.

ELY – The public is invited to participate
in National Public Lands Day (NPLD) on
Saturday, Sept. 27.  Volunteers will help
to install a split rail fence and, if possible,
paint wind shelters at the Illipah
Recreation Area (Reservoir) located
south of U.S. Highway 50 about 37 miles
west of Ely, Nev.

Children’s activities will celebrate
wilderness on this, the 50th anniversary
of the Wilderness Act, and include
education on Leave No Trace values,
responsible OHV use, and wildlife
identification through tracks, scat and

Registration opens at 9 a.m., at the
recreation area.  From Ely, drive west on
Highway 50, turn at the sign for Illipah
Reservoir and continue 1 mile to a road
junction, turn left and continue one and a
half miles to the campground.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring work
gloves, though some will be available.  All
participants will receive a free NPLD Tee-
shirt and children will receive goodie
bags, while supplies last.

NPLD is a success nationwide because
of the collaboration between federal,
state and local agencies, private
organizations and individual volunteers.  
The event is spearheaded each year by
the National Environmental Education
and Training Foundation.
