As the light wans over Crimson Dawn park Friday June 21, the storyteller Rebecca Hunt begins the annual tradition of retelling the fables created by Elizabeth Neal Forsling on Casper Mountain. This year marked the 90th anniversary of this tradition of bringing the community on to her land as friends recreate her stories of witches ending in a bonfire on top of a clearing on the mountain. "The best way I can describe Neal is she was an artist, poet and environmentalist," says Hunt who was a close family friend before taking over the role of the storyteller. The kid friendly event drew hundreds of spectators who walked through the forest surrounding Neal's cabin and visiting the shrines which marked a witch or character from her stories. "It's magic in the way that storytelling is magic," says Hunt.
