Dark Skies Murder Mystery Quilt Retreat

There's a historic meteor shower headed for Bryce Canyon, one of the nation's premier Dark Sky National Parks. All sorts of people are coming to witness the shower; from sage professors of astronomy to ufologists and plenty of ordinary people. So many in fact, the locals are all turning their homes into bed-and-breakfast inns. Will the shower be worth all the bother? For at least one person the shower spells doom. Was it foul play or just the dangers of driving mountain roads?

Help the Garfield County Sheriff's Department solve the mystery by piecing together 12 blocks to figure out whodunit!

The Retreat will be held at Willow Creek Inn in Ephaim, UT
