Title The Legend of the Ledges - The Dean Jones Hill
Description THE LEGEND OF THE LEDGES Roxie N. Washburn Honorable Mention Non Professional Anecdote As a young child growing up in Wales, Ralph enjoyed hikes and picnics up the canyon and behind the ledges The rock ledges come almost together like giant gates, leaving just room for the stream bed and a narrow road. It was always exciting to know that his family was going to make a trip up the West Mountain for a load of wood to use for their winter heat. Lunches were packed while the team was harnessed and the wagon made ready, wheels greased and brakes checked before making the trip up the steep dug-road. After the wood was loaded and the picnic lunch enjoyed, the team was once again hooked up to the wagon and they were ready to start home The trip home was slow because of the heavy load for the horses to pull going up hill so the wagon was stopped often to let them rest. It was also hard for the team to hold the wagon and load back going down the hill so the brake would be used to slow them down. Ralph became anxious as the sun began to go down behind the Mountains, he began to tell his father to hurry faster before it got dark and the ledges closed and locked so they couldn't get out. You see the older boys had been teasing him that the ledges closed and locked if they didn't get out before dark. THE DEAN JONES HILL Carl H. Carpenter Honorable Mention Non Professional Anecdote There were two places on the outskirts of Manti where we learned how to ski in the 1940's. The large, round-topped hill east of the Temple was one of them and was locally called, "The City Trail." 18
