Spirit and Mustang Cave Blanding Utah Bears Ears National Monument

This video is about a couple friends that have passed away. The morning was spent on a couple short walks thinking of them.

Special thanks to Duke’s family for thinking of us and inviting us to attend this special occasion.

    I’m a big fan of your videos, and have been fortunate to explore a few of the places you highlight. This video was close to home as we were staying for several days at Blue Mountain RV Park on our way from Arizona to Canada, and were there on the day of Duke’s memorial. They closed the office for the morning and we talked a bit with Craig and Luke in the office after they re-opened. We enjoyed our stay, got a chance to explore and hike to a ruin, and plan to go again. I got the book Cowboys and Cave Dwellers after hearing about it in your video and could not put it down. I’m familiar with Fred through several books I’ve enjoyed by David Roberts. In the 90’s, I hiked to several ruins in John’s Canyon and Fry Canyon. Now recently retired, I plan to do more and look forward to more videos and perhaps meeting you someday. Thanks for your great work!

    We saw the 1st location just the other day by accident while walking the dogs. We didn’t go down into them. We are visiting the area, what are the chances of seeing them on your video.

    That was so sweet. I never had the privilege of meeting Huck. When I started frequenting that area he had already passed though I was curious about the museum. I had several people ask me if I had ever met Huck, including Duke’s son. Looks like I really missed a golden opportunity. You are right that these two probably held within them a treasure trove of great stories and many secrets. Nice tribute, Dana. Even last year I had already missed Duke’s booming "hello" when I entered the trading post. He was certainly a fixture there for me.

    Very sorry for the loss of your Friends. I never new them or met them but after watching your video I kind of miss them. Best wishes

    Nice tribute to special friends. After more than 30 trips to Cedar Mesa since the early 90’s we never had
    the pleasure of meeting Huck or Duke. Sounds like it was our loss. Enjoyed the video.
