About 1974 the Rainbow Family of Living Light more or less
appropriated a Forest Service campground near Granby, Colorado
and had an unventful gathering despite dire warnings from the
Forest Service and the local county sherrif's dept.

About a week after the sherrif summoned the news media back
to the site and announced he had found evidence of ritual
satanism and three graves to prove it. As we apporached the
area we saw, to our horror, three grave like mounds very
neatly piled up.

However, when the backhoe dug into them it found the family
had merely properly covered their latrines, and had added
extra dirt on top to prevent animals from digging in and
also to account for subsidence.

So much for muck raking.
