This camouflaged "Military Highway Scout Kar" was built by Kissel Motor Car Company of Wisconsin; the camouflage was painted to honor the company's work supplying vehicles to several countries in WWI.

The car in this form was a promotional vehicle, and toured the west coast promoting the company and their cars. The photographer who created our original glass plate was Christopher Helin, the automotive editor of the San Francisco Examiner from 1915 through 1935.

The very impressive gateway to the park is the Nisqually Entrance Gate, built in 1911. It is now part of the Nisqually Entrance National Historic District.
