A story from one of our Founding Members, thanks Kate! Wow! What a wonderful day I had hiking today.  I started out with just a small exploratory hike in mind, and ended up on a wonderful adventure.  While hiking along the old mining roads that run throughout the Vermilion Cliffs I crossed over a little dry creek bed framed by two large sentinel stones.  “I wonder where that leads” was the thought passing through my mind.  Well I had time and plenty of water so I decided to check it out.  I headed up the trailing, following the footprints of a sheep or deer that must also...
