Historically it is not uncommon for a Southern Utah ranching family to work several parcels of land at different elevations in order to avoid overgrazing the land.  67 year old Susan Savage, a native of Leeds, Utah talks to her friend Martha about working alone during the 90's, at her family's secluded high elevation ranch at the base of the Pine Valley Mountains.  These two ranches operate today working in tandem under the stewardship of Susan's nephew and his family.
