Today is Pioneer Day where people of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints remember the Mormon Pioneers who crossed the plains to settle in Utah.
A couple of my pictures were used as well and my daughter was quoted. She was referring to the Women’s pull they had where these young ladies pulled the cart up this incredibly steep hill without the help of any of the boys or men.
They hiked 20 miles total over 3 days in the heat, humidity, thunderstorms, hail and even crossed the river twice.
They had challenges and activities along the way to remind them of the Mormon Pioneer ancestors crossing the plains.
They had no running water or electricity at camp.
I have a great respect for these 250 youth who put aside their electronics and worldly things to participate in this incredible spiritual experience.
