From the Redds of Indian Creek 12/07/08...
...As you know, one of our dogs is missing from the Dugout Ranch (aka Indian Creek area). Please forward this email to anyone who may be able to help.
"Jack" is a female Kelpie/Boxer cross, with distinctive black and white markings and a couple brown spots on her cheek. (pictures attached) She is a very sweet, affectionate and friendly dog who went missing shortly before Thanksgiving. Jack's brother was picked up by a female rock climber on 11/23 and was TAKEN to Moab. This climber kept our dog for a week before reporting it to the Humane Society, where I finally tracked him down on 12/3.
Jack is unfortunately still missing. She was wearing a brown leather collar with a brass nameplate riveted to it that clearly stated she lives at Dugout Ranch, along with all our contact information.
If anyone has any information at all, or someone in town has s dog matching her description, please contact us at this email or leave a message at 435-459-0018. Feel free to email if you have any questions or need more information.
Also, I thought you should know this is not the first time this has happened. Perhaps if we can get the word out, this type of thing will happen less frequently. I am planning to post flyers at the kiosks down here as well.
Please advise people: If you see a "stray" dog at Indian Creek, bring it to the ranch to ask before you make any assumptions. The bottom line: you are climbing and camping on private and leased property, where these dogs live and work daily. Please have some common sense. Our dogs are very friendly and will not forgo attention! Because they let you pet them (or feed them!) does not mean they are strays.

|Everyone thinking of visiting the canyon country should first read DESERT TOWERS: Fat Cat Cat Summits and Kitty Litter Rock by Steve "Crusher" Bartlett. The book is now (10-1-10) on the shelves at fine mountain shops and available at sharpendbooks.com. It is the quintessential coffee table book of the history of desert tower climbing.|

|Just outside the Bryce Canyon National Park area there is a new climbing area known as "The Jungle on the Aquarius Plateau." Check it out for great routes and lots of possibilities for more. As of Sep. 1st, 2015, there are 156+ routes up ranging from 6s to 13s with something in each range. We could use some help putting up more! Especially with 12s an up. There are some really good hard lines that have anchors above them. I am reluctant to bolt what I can no longer climb. So... calling all hard asses!|

I had my car broken into at Chuckawalla Wall in St. George Yesterday 20/28/11. My trad rack was stolen as well as a red Rab shell, and a brown OR puffy with Zion Adventure Company Embroidered on it. My girlfriend had her luggage stolen with her purse, all her clothing, jewelry, bike gear, etc.
It never feels good to be violated in this way, and I want to offer a warning to be careful at some of these remote trailheads.
I am posting a list of what was stolen separately, but if anyone sees this equipment turn up please contact me. All my gear has purple duct tape, or purple paint on it.
