Lila Adams, who ran Adams’ Pack Station for 35 years with her husband Bill, has passed away on September 22nd, 2013.
Bill and Lila were married and moved into the pack station in 1953, when it still had a crank phone to the city and an outhouse in back. They steadfastly upheld the packing tradition and a cordial attitude through many fires, floods, regulations and cultural changes that affected Big Santa Anita Canyon.
“This is a great loss. I find myself struggling with how to continue such a great tradition. Lila had such a kind touch. Everyone who knew her loved her.” ~Deb Burgess, owner of Adams’ Pack Station
