    On Saturday Sept, 8th small group of awesome volunteers hiked into the West Clear Creek wilderness with buckets, scrub pads, and brushes to remove the graffiti that was spreading in the grotto area below the big rappel in Sundance Canyon. All it took was some water, elbow grease, and a little perseverance and we were able to restore the beauty of the canyon in no time. A fire ring in the grotto was dismantled in hopes that more charcoal graffiti will not reappear. A big thank you for all who attended. If you are not already a member, don't forget to join the CAC.
