Field Trip-Part I

On the way to Kanab, my friend Marilyn and I stopped at Pipe Springs National Monument and took a tour. It's an historical site where a spring runs through the canyon. Native Americans used the area, later the Mormons build a small fort/house and had a cattle ranch there. It was fun to look through the museum and buildings.

The Paiute Indians lived in wickiups made of trees and weeds.
