Dear Readers,


This issue of The Grail is dedicated to the Reed Canyon in honor of Fall Canyon Day 2016. Starting off is a brief history of the Canyon culminating in this summer’s brand new path in Canyon Day: A History (1). Next, Indra Boving shares an extra special list of what you need to find in the Canyon before graduating in Canyon Bucket List (6). Ever wondered how people got across the Canyon before the Blue and Bouncy Bridges? Find out on page (8). Leila Pyle’s Canyon Day illustration of the majestic blue heron (10) and a poem by Tiffany Thio (11) follow this. After that, enjoy a guide to Reed Canyon’s Flora and Fauna (12), and join Miss Lonely Hearts for a whiskered encounter (14).
