Man has enjoyed the area since 10,000 BC. The Ute, Comanche, Goshiute, and Shoshone peoples gathered in spring and summer to hunt there as early as 6,000 BC. The Apache finally appear in the park area around 1800. In 1820 the first non Native Americans finally enter and view the park area. They are known as the Stephen A Long Expedition.
On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention. Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
