Six of our eight kids had other family members on the trek.
This is Elizabeth's "real" sister who was in a different family.
They'd get together when they had a chance.
Dallin's father served as Pa Mackay.
They had a chance to visit during our break
before our last leg of the trek.
We fixed all our own meals,
but two - our first and last on the trail.
Our cook station provided the food and the recipe.
Everyone pitched in and helped.
Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwiches
Fried Potatoes, Sausage, and Eggs
We didn't starve.
Lots of snacks and fruit too.
I gained three pounds on the trek. I hope it's muscle.
Music was part of the trek everyday.
Mostly the kids sang as they walked.
I heard a bit in the evening too as the day would winding down.
Our Sunday meetings had music too
with all of us singing
or as pictured above,
a special musical number.
"Lord I Would Follow Thee"
Hymn No. 220 - 1st verse
Text: Susan Evan McCloud
Music: K. Newell Dayley
Savior, may I learn to love thee,
Walk the path that thou hast shown.
Pause to help and lift another,
Finding strength beyond my own.
Savior may I learn to love thee-
Lord, I would follow thee.
Ready to move on.
