Cecil and Sharon, Claudia, Brian, Doug, spouses and two grandchildren came up to Martin's Cove last week. We also had Tina and Steve and Paul and Robin, Amy and her friend Eric. We had a great time and these are the photos.
Getting ready to trek. This is out in front of the Trek Center
On the first turn going towards Veil Bridge and the Sweetwater River.
At Veil Bridge the missionaries have stories. Elder and Sister Braiden from Manassa, Colorado, greeted us.
We trekked on to Martin's Cove. This is a 5 mile round trip, the Cove is halfway, and you climb for most of it.
Leaving the Cove, finally downhill a little, on our way to the Sweetwater for a river crossing to commemorate the rescue at the Sweetwater on Nov. 4, 1856.
Here we are reenacting the rescue and the crossing of the Sweetwater. Eric showed us all up and carried Amy across, then showed of by pulling the handcart the last mile or so.
We had a great time with family. John and Jean had a chance to do Ephraim Hanks and Thisbe Read, but no photos, since Eph didn't have a camera. Maybe someone else has a photo we can use.
