10 Years Ago: On the cool, windy Friday morning of May 14, a group of about 150 walkers stretched and warmed up for what would be a 19-mile trek from the junction of Colorado Highways 160 and 491 to the Four Corners Monument. This was the 14th year of the Walking Together for Healthier Nations. Southern Ute Council Lady Marjorie Borst spoke of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Borst was one of the original organizers for the Southern Ute diabetes program and aided in the walk years ago.
