      Boy Scout Memorial

      JUST PRIOR TO THE CREATION of Lake Powell, a party of 49, including Explorer Scout Post 36 from LDS Pleasant View 3rd Ward, Provo, Utah, set out on an expedition to run the Colorado River rapids between Hole-in-the-Rock and Glen Canyon. Riding in an open truck, they reached this point at approximately 3:15 on the afternoon of June 10, 1963.The truck stalled as it ascended the grade, and its brakes failed. Rolling backward, it overturned and rolled down the steep embankment on the other side of the sharp curve from this monument. Seven scouts and six adults lost their lives in this tragic highway accident, the third worst in Utah's history. In loving memory of those who perished:Gary Lynn Christensen, 14; Lynn Louis Merrell, 15; Robert Cook, 29; Randy Wayne Miller, 14; W.A. "Bill" Creer, 39; Marvin Poschatis, 29; Joseph William Erickson, 16; Gary Lynn Rasmussen, 15; Gordon Henry Grow, 15; Dr. Martin J. Shaw, 5;1 Randy L. Hall, 13; Dr. Harvey Darrell Taylor, 45; Dorothy Hansen, 24. Erected and dedicated June 10, 1993 by the families and friends of those who perished, in cooperation with Kane County and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
