Sojourns was a semi-annual publication of the Peaks, Plateaus & Canyons Association (PPCA) and its member organizations. Each issue was aimed at a general audience and covered topics focusing on the cultural and natural history of the Colorado Plateau. It was published to support the mission of PPCA.
Dear Sojourns Readers:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that PPCA will cease publishing Sojourns with the current issue (Seeing Connections). It has been a wonderful experience, one that will likely not be duplicated.
Thirteen different cooperating associations from across the Colorado Plateau jointly published what has been an inspirational and uplifting publication celebrating the many diverse aspects of the Colorado Plateau.
It has been a benefit for the members of our associations who have received this publication as a membership benefit, greatly enhancing their love and understanding of the area.
I don’t know of any publication that has brought together such a diverse group of individual associations, from small to large, who contributed and collaborated, put egos aside, and developed a product that did justice to the Colorado Plateau.
I would like to thank all of the associations, who put their whole heart and soul into the process for generating articles for this publication. It was amazing to watch as we brainstormed throughout the year about the upcoming and future issues, topics, authors, and photographers to make this publication successful. It has been a very exciting process to be involved with.
I must also thank and celebrate the design and editorial team that made this publication possible.
Carol Haralson has been a driving force and inspiration for the design and content of the publication. You can feel the love she’s had for Sojourns, as she has put her whole heart and soul into it. Thank you, Carol, for all of your design and editorial expertise over the years.
Greer Price, and prior to him Pam Frazier, were both wonderful project managers who oversaw the entire process.
Their skill in leading the brainstorming sessions contributed to the overall success of the publication. They were magnificent in getting the right articles, authors, and photographers to collaborate with us in the production of this wonderful piece.
We would also like to thank the members of our associations who’ve look forward every six months to receiving this publication. I know I have had members of our organization call to inquire when the next issue is coming out, as they’ve looked forward to receiving it several times each year.
We will now try to fill this void with something else, so look forward for that in the future.
Thank you all for your support.
Richard C. Millett
