We learned about the Martin and Willie handcart companies.There are so many stories of belief, bravery, and rescue.
I loved the stories and I LOVED dressing up like a pioneer and tromping around the wilderness. Seriously, I belong in the desert. I could have worn a skirt and kicked sagebrush around until the season changed.
I imagined rattlers and buffalo while I walked, but a couple of little blisters were my only discomfort. We walked a lot.
I enjoyed the quiet of it all. There is space to think in the desert.
