The Final Adventure

In June of 1952, “Wop” and his son Denny left on a driving holiday from Calgary to Great Falls (Montana), Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming, Salt Lake City and Timpanagos Cave National Monument in Utah.

As Denny tells it, “On June 21st, we headed to Provo, and to the parking lot for Timpanagos Cave, and started up the steep trail. About half way up my Dad said, ‘I can’t go any further, you go on ahead and see the caves and I’ll head back to the car,’ I started up the trail and he called me back saying,  ‘take my picture to show people I got this far.’ I headed on up the trail, and on coming out of the caves, found my Dad lying dead. He had suffered a stroke, but he made it all the way to the top.”
