Ranger Jack Moomaw made his mark at Rocky Mountain National Park
After World War I ended, Jack Moomaw took a seasonal job in Rocky Mountain National Park as a trail foreman in Wild Basin. A new trail, cut in 1921, provided a southern approach to Longs Peak. The following year, Moomaw made the first January ascent of the peak. Moomaw's hard work prompted Superintendent Roger Toll to offer Moomaw a job as a full-time park ranger.
