Pioneer Trail Experience
I just did something over the weekend that I’ve wanted to do all my life — I actually walked the pioneer trial in Wyoming for three days, pushing a handcart; just like the early pioneers did back in 1856.
We patterned our trail after the Willie/Martin Handcart Company that traveled from Illinois to Utah. Thank goodness I didn’t walk that far — 15 miles was enough for me.
I don’t know how the early pioneers did it, cause I barely made it. However we all had a great time in the Sweetwater River; a little relief from the heat.
Below are a few pictures from my trip from the last couple days.
