A tremendous amount of work and planning goes into make this a happy and, from what we've heard, a smashing success. We cannot thank enough the youth leaders and others who made this possible. I'm hoping to get more pictures soon to share.
Here are just a couple.
They had terrible weather-- 50-60 mile an hour winds at time, pelting rain. CRAZY stuff. Clark got to play the part of one of the "Valley Boys" who carried others across the Sweetwater River. According to Clark, his favorite parts were when things were the hardest with weather or river crossings.
I am very proud of both of them and all the youth of the ward. I hope maybe someday I'll go on a pioneer trek-- but I fear I wouldn't handle it as well as they did.
They returned home on Saturday, but earlier that morning, the younger kids and I had a fun adventure.
Actually, they kept announcing it in Primary, and George kept asking me when it was that we were going to be in the parade. It's hard to say no to George because he is a very persistent little fellow. Also in the picture is our neighbor Ben, whose family was almost all on Trek.
We built bird houses.
