Driving cattle up Logan Canyon, not vehicles

As happens every year, the Logan Canyon cattle allotment permittees will be moving their cattle for two days up the Logan Canyon on Highway 89 starting Wednesday, August 18 and continuing through Thursday, August 19.Over 1400 cattle will be moved from the lower, early-summer pastures to higher summer pastures. The cattle will be pushed up the highway in groups of 200 to 300 over a two-day period starting at Temple Fork Road to the cattle guard below Twin Creeks, a distance of 2.5 miles. Forest Service spokeswoman Kathy Jo Pollock says motorists can expect delays along the highway throughout the cattle drive and drivers should slow down when traveling through the steep curves of Logan Canyon.
