Grateful Kitchen camp at the Rainbow Family Gathering 30 miles east of Cougar, Wash. in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest on Friday July 1, 2011. As many as 20,000 people have turned out for annual gatherings of the Rainbow Family, which has no formal structure or leaders. An informal council decides each year where the gathering will be held. For years, the decisions have sparked court battles with the Forest Service over the group�s right to gather without a permit. (AP Photo/The Columbian, Zachary Kaufman)
