Spend your Halloween weekend in Red River Gorge!

Miguel’s Pizza is hosting a dessert buffet and bake off this Saturday at 6 pm. $10 gets you into the all-you-can-eat dessert buffet and enters you into a raffle. Prizes include shoes, a pack, a headlamp and a two-night stay at Miguel’s penthouse! Prizes will be awarded for best dessert and best costume.

 All proceeds will benefit Friends of Muir Valley. FOMV is an organization that works to keep Muir Valley Nature Preserve open and operational. The group is volunteer-based, with members helping to build and maintain trails and crags on the property.

 Unlike the other major climbing properties in the area, Muir Valley in privately owned by Rick and Liz Weber, who have put an extensive amount of work into the land. The Webers have worked to install security cameras in the parking lot, three vault toilets in the preserve, a restroom in the parking lot, and even a stick-clip lending program!

Most notably, however, is the establishment of Muir Valley Rescue. Local emergency services are not allowed to leave their vehicles, leaving an injured climber to hike themselves out to help, in the event of an emergency. Muir Valley Rescue fills in this gap, training people to be first responders in wilderness first aid.
