Writer Leigh Ann Henion and Photographer H. Scott Hoffmann

During last year's herding up to Roan, the normal component of volunteers was joined by writer Leigh Ann Henion and photographer H. Scott Hoffmann, seen in the photo above.

Those of you who were there may recall that almost half the goats decided to take an all day detour on their way up to Jane Bald.

Our State has just published the article which Leigh Ann wrote for them on the events of that day. Combined with Scott's fabulous photographs, they have provided readers a wonderful first-hand account of that memorable herding. Many thanks to Our State magazine for providing the link to this story for us.
