Back in the early 1930's a young man by the name of Ramah (Ray) Mead traveled to San Isabel from Rye to work for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was established by the government during the Great Depression to help young men earn money for their families. The government was hiring workers to build a new dam to create a lake in Custer and Pueblo counties for the CF&I steel mill located in Pueblo.

Mead was a cook and knew his skills would be needed to help feed all the men and women that would be working there. The project took several years to complete and finally a beautiful new lake, Lake Isabel, was created. Later, a 1.3-mile trail was built around the lake to make it more accessible to people of all abilities.

Fast forward to August 8th, 2019. Mead's great grandson, Nathan Fox, son of Amy (Golly) Fox, daughter of Betty (Golly) Mead, daughter of Ray Mead, took on the challenge of organizing an Eagle Scout Boy Scouts of America (BSA) service project in cooperation with the USDA Forest service to repair the path around Lake Isabel.
