During the season (June, July, August, September), life at the post was always busy with fire patrol, guarding the thermal features, flirting with the maids of the hotels and camps, and going to dances. There were sports as well. Baseball was viewed as the national pastime, and games were played with tourists to cheer the soldiers on. "A great deal of calling always among army people. Calling on newcomers, calling if anyone had a house guest and people always called when they were leaving for a new post."
