Twisting Whitewater Splinter Creek with May Greenery

This photograph was taken in early May 2016 in a beautiful stream which feeds into
Camp Splinter on the Cranberry River. Camp Splinter is a great old structure which is
still in use today. It was built by the CCCs which were started by the FDR administration
in the 1930s. The CCC program was initiated to give work to depression era people and
stimulate the local economies in many rural areas. It helped to give hope and wages to many
local people who desperately needed all the assistance they could get. My uncle worked with
the CCCs. They also built many roads into the rural West Virginia which still exist today!
