<i><b>Canyonlands turns 50...</b><br></i>
Jessica Graymountain of the Utah State University-Blanding Cultural Performers, dances the traditional Navajo Fancy Shawl dance at the beginning of 50th anniversary celebration for Canyonlands National Park on Friday, Sept. 12. More than 300 people attended the event, which was held in the Needles District of Canyonlands. Speakers included noted historian and author Douglas Brinkley, who, describing Canyonlands as “a place of the mind,” praised the efforts of park employees present and past for serving as stewards of the land. Author Jen Jackson Quintano, read an excerpt from her book “Blow Sand in His Soul” and spoke about her experience in writing about Bates Wilson. The book follows Wilson’s efforts in the early 1960s to convince Congress and other federal and state officials that the park should be created. Wilson’s tireless work ultimately earned him the title “Father of Canyonlands,” and he also was named the park’s first superintendent. Wilson’s son, Alan “Tug” Wilson also spoke at the event, sharing stories about his father and memories of times they shared in backcountry areas of Canyonlands before and after the park was established. President Lyndon Johnson signed the proclamation establishing Canyonlands National Park on Sept. 12, 1964. Last week’s celebration and a host of other other events held throughout the week were organized by the Friends of Arches and Canyonlands. Photo by Lee Gelatt
