In 1986 Jane & Ken Sleight saw the potential of the property and the lands that surrounded it, and purchased the ranch.
Ken and Jane's vision, generosity and untiring spirit have made Pack Creek Ranch the magical place it is today. Google Ken Sleight, for more background on this legendary river runner, horse pack guide and good friend of late author Edward Abbey. One of Abbey's notable characters in the Monkey Wrench Gang, 'Seldom Seen Smith' was none other than Pack Creek's Ken Sleight.

Ken Sleight delivered the eulogy at Ed Abbey's Memorial May 20, 1989. Others whom Abbey developed as members of "the Gang" were also at the memorial: Ken Sleight, aka the polygamous "Seldom Seen Smith"; and Ingrid Eisenstadter, aka the voluptuous "Bonnie Abzug" and girlfriend of "Doc Sarvis. "Seldom Seen" Ken Sleight, a ranch owner at Pack Creek south of Moab, said a few people have stepped forward over the years claiming that Abbey based the Doc character on them. As for the Monkey Wrench film, Sleight said director Catherine Hardwicke was still working on the project over the past year, and that the cast had been selected.
