Volunteers turned out in record numbers for the annual Cayton Ranger Station cleanup on Friday, June 6.

Among them were relatives of past rangers, members of the Rifle Creek Museum board, the Cayton Ranger Station Foundation and staff from the Rifle Ranger District and Glenwood Springs supervisors office of the White River National Forest.

The Cayton station, located about 22 miles south of Silt on Forest Service Road 79, is the second oldest ranger station in the United States and the annual cleanup helps preserve and make it ready for summer use.
