To be a pioneer. . .
Dan and I were asked to be photographers on a Pioneer Trek with our church a couple of weeks ago. It was fun to go back to my photojournalism roots and cover something like this. What hard work though! I have a better appreciation of what our ancestors did when they came to Utah. I thought four days was rough, I can’t image three months — and we had it easy. We had a great experience though. Of the 2000 images we took here are just a few of my favorites.
There was a lot of pushing and pulling especially on the women’s pull. All the girls had to push the carts themselves for one full mile. All the carts had between four and six girls. It made for a more authentic experience. These girls are tired.
There was some fun and games too.
Spiritual times too.
