We came, we learned, we made frog rocks, and some kissed the frogs! It was a beautiful, cool morning, perfect for learning about the famous Angels Camp Jumping Frogs. Our local frog Jockeys and Frog mobile joined us for a fabulous time. We were surrounded by many past winners who shared the secrets to winning at our local Jumping Frog Jubilee. A big thank you to the Kitchells and Ron Dwellys crew.
