Where are they now? It is a question that is most asked about actors, musicians or sports heroes who had, at one time, been well-known but then had faded into the woodwork only to reappear years later, hard lived and well-worn, as a competitor in “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Dancing with the Stars.”

When my wife saw the pictures of a geologic feature known as White Pocket that I had visited a couple of years ago, it went on her bucket list. It was the second day of a three-day trip on the Arizona side of the Utah border. The first day, we traveled through the Kaibab Forest visiting view…
