I am glad you stopped by.
It's another HOT Summer day!
And also it is a holiday today in Utah.
Every year we Celebrate our
July 1847 Brigham Young proclaimed
"This Is The Place"
From that time forward until the
Transcontinental Railroad was completed in
May 1869 thousand of members of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
traveled the treacherous terrain of the Mormon Trail
Crossing 1300 miles of desert plains,
high rocky mountain passes. Crossing overflowing
streams and rivers. Rainy days and hot sunny days,
freezing weather, muddy trails. Disease, death, childbirth,
accidents, hardships and heartache.
All this and more.
With Courage and Faith.
Believing in a living God.
Faith In Every Footstep.
They are mine and I am theirs
I am who I am because of them!
I will forever be thankful for my Pioneer Heritage.
