When some 15,000 members of the Rainbow Family meet
within Wyoming's Bridger-Teton National Forest later this month,
things may be calm after all. In nearby Big Piney, population 454,
townspeople are open-minded about the invasion of counterculture
types from all over the country, says town clerk Susan Lison. In
contrast to Pinedale, where residents are "scared to death," Lison
says, "I think we can handle it."
