The Pioneer Trek

Sarah and Jonathan spent Wednesday through today on the Pioneer Trek. Somewhere near the Wyoming border they pulled handcarts about 30 miles across sage brush strewn wilderness. They slept in tents at night (other Stakes had to sleep under their handcart). They had good meals (other Stakes rationed food like the pioneers). They wore traditional pioneer garb (woohoo - Sarah loved it - I actually saw a young lady wearing her pioneer trek dress at Walmart after they all arrived home - a truly dedicated participant). They said it rained and then was really hot. They also said they had a really good time - it was alot of fun. I am so glad they were able to participate in this activity.
