Clayton Long lives in Blanding Utah; Liz Ballenger lives in Moab. They met halfway in Monticello, finding common ground for their love of nature and juggling the different cultures introduced to them throughout their lives.
This conversation was recorded by Utah Public Radio in partnership with StoryCorps as a part of their One Small Step project. One Small Step programming is also made possible by AARP Utah, a non-partisan, social change organization with membership helping people 50 and over improve their lives by providing material, programs, and advocacy on key issues.
