A dramatic discovery. A mysterious death. An endangered history. The neglected, overgrown grave of David Gowan in a tangled thicket along Deer Creek has it all. And now it also has a would-be protector: Bill Gibson and whatever volunteers he can enlist in an effort to save a precious bit of Rim Country history — by restoring the grave of one of the region’s most remarkable pioneers. Gibson plans a March 10 project with as many volunteers as he can muster, after having labored for eight months to win permission from the U.S. Forest Service to restore the abandoned gravesite.
