Researching--as in searching and searching again!

   I'm so enjoying traveling to little museums and finding more connections to Chipeta.  Found her branding iron in Meeker,
and a woven basket she made in Delta.
I also stopped to see the Council Tree, now in a Delta neighborhood, where the Utes supposedly met.  Chipeta was the only woman allowed to attend council meetings.
All these things may have to go on a separate page called local legends, since I can't find any corroboration for them, but it's still fun to find them!
