A short personal experience as told by Reed Graff on July 5 1996

Contributor: Hadizoo Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When Reed was about 12 years of age, living in Santa Clara with his family, his family grew and sold fruit and produce in various areas. One area took them, by team and wagon, up the area presently U18, past the volcanoes in the Diamond Valley area then on north. The heavy load of fruit and produce dictated a second team of horses to help pull the load from the Santa Clara area, to the north end of the black ridge where Diagonal street now ends, then north past Dodge's Spring and on up across the sands area and finally up the other steep hills to the top of the hill T the foot of the southerly most of the volcanoes. At that point, the second team was to be returned, via Snow Canyon to Santa Clara, and the first team was to be fed from the meager feed supply (alfalfa) hauled on a special place on the back of the wagon. On the occasion in question, the driver of the wagon for the trips was Chester Graff, older brother of Reed. The boy taken with to return the second team via Snow Canyon was Reed. As they made that last steep climb, and rested the horses at the top of the hill, night was fast approaching and Chester delighted in telling Reed the scariest ghost stories Chester knew. Greatly impressed, and scared spotless, Reed refused to venture alone into the night and take the horses down the Snow Canyon trail. As a result, the second team also had to be fed from the scarce and valuable hay. Next morning, in the light of day, Reed ventured forth and took the horses home arriving safely, but a day late. His father and mother were somewhat forgiving of his lateness and the worry it caused, but his father was not at all happy about the waste of the precious hay, hauled so carefully and with great trouble for the horses making the full trip.
