Regreening of Cache Valley: Recreation in the Canyon
Recreation in the Canyon
This report speaks about the changing purpose of the canyon. At first it was a place to gather firewood, trap for fur and harness the power of the river. Later it became a place for sight see-ers to camp near the river, to hike the peaks and experience the wild. Once the canyon became a national reserve those who once made a living in the canyon yielded to those who went to the canyon to leave behind the worries of making a living.
