Here is a picture of the trek I told you I was going on. We got a bit of rain and didn't trek quite as far as we had originally planned, but still made it almost 30 miles (29.7 to be exact). It was hard at times, but worth it. If you ever get a chance to trek, do it!

Books About the Pioneers

As I prepare for trek,  I've been reading books about the Willie & Martin Handcart companies. If you would like a glimpse of what it was like to be a pioneer and trek across America, you might like these books too! 

"Fire Of The Covenant" by Gerald N. Lund
 "The Price We Paid" by Andrew D. Olsen.
