Trek End

Saturday morning we had our best breakfast yet, oatmeal with brown sugar, raisins and apple bits!

It gave us lots of energy to start what we knew best, pulling and pushing the handcart.

We had time to reflect on the blessings we had received, which included great weather, marred only by a short afternoon shower each day. We had beautiful scenery, no mosquitoes, and best of all a wonderful group of kids to be our own for 4 days. We're going to miss them.

Our last challenge was a little walk through the river just to get a taste of pioneer life. After that it was a short hop back to Camp Liahona, our starting point. There the kids met up with their families and we were able to meet their real parents, the ones that had raised such great kids that made our pioneer trek such a wonderful experience.

We made it safely home and immediately washed off four days of dirt. It took a lot of suds! Then, we went out to eat at J&P Pizza where we made up for any calories we may have missed while living like a pioneer. Ed decided not to shave yet. He wants to proudly wear his four day beard to church to commemorate our trek experience. It was the best!
