Arriving in the mail...

today is yet another book, The Adventure Climbs of Herb & Jan Conn by Lindsay Stephens, a gift from the Bu parents. Thanks!

I met Herb and Jan a few years back while working at Jewel Cave National Monument on a caving project and they are quite extraordinary people. Now on in their years, Jan was the first woman to climb Devils Tower in Wyoming by a technical route in 1948, and together they explored and mapped more than 60 miles of cave passages in Jewel Cave.
