    The name "kettlefoot" comes from the the huge black bear that used to roam these mountains. Legend has it that he had paws the size of "kettles", thus kettle foot. I have a copy of a newspaper article given to one of the club founders, Frank Thomas, that refers to the bear. I plan to frame it and put it in the club house.
