History & Lore of Logan Canyon

The Stokes Nature Center in Logan is producing a series of podcasts about Logan Canyon, which can be heard on the center's website or downloaded to mobile devices so people can listen to them while touring the canyon.

The center has also produced a brochure to compliment the podcasts.

Hwy 89 in Logan Canyon is a popular scenic byway that passes through beautiful mountain scenery. It follows the Logan River and provides access to quality fishing spots and historic sites. It is one of Utah's most popular mountain drives.

The first podcast is called Too Many Sheep. Here's how the Nature Center describes the podcast series:

This podcast consists of 15 stories on different historic sites and legends of the canyon. For the rest of the series, one podcast will be released each week beginning January 3rd, 2011. Each podcast is linked to a specific site in the canyon where you can listen to the story while experiencing a piece of the history or lore that sill exists. Download the tour brochure on the Stokes Nature Center website for directions to each site. Sources, text, and more information are also available on the Stokes Nature Center website.

Here's the intro from the brochure:

Stokes Nature Center (SNC) is proud to present the History & Lore of Logan Canyon tour and podcast. Take a tour through Logan Canyon and learn about its amazing history and fascinating lore! This brochure is designed to be used along with the History and Lore of Logan Canyon podcast series, which can be downloaded off the SNC website. Or rent an mp3 player at SNC with the program already downloaded. Each podcast (or audio-recorded story) is linked to a specific site in the canyon where you can listen to the story while experiencing a piece of the history or lore that still exists.
