Back Country Campsite Closed
Due to bear activity at Bryce Canyon's back-country, the following campsite has been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek
Master Leopold Bigbugh
Name: Master Leopold Bigbugh
Scanner is a potted Cycad which Leopold lets root momentarily in the soil to tell him what rocks and mineral are present.
In an unprecedented move, Master Leopold Bigbugh and his Cycad traveled North America stopping at four National Parks in four days. Along with collecting rock types with his Cycad and stamping his National Parks passport he spent the whole time whining about having to leave his office.
From there he went to Crater Lake National Park and sampled the volcanic rocks of Wizzard Island.
Feeling the need to be in a warmer environment he took his Cycad to White Sands National Monument. There the Cycad found an ample supply of silica to construct its cell walls.
Unfortunately, Leopold was caught collecting without a permit and had to return all his samples. The rangers also took away his fake Golden Age Pass (he's not yet 62) that he was using to get into all the parks for free.
