Scavenger Hunt Sunday #3

A group of my friends and a couple of our wives went on a trail ride this week.  We thought it would be on a dirt road with a few rough places.  We were following what is called the Hole In the Rock trail.  In 1879-1880 winter a group of Mormon settlers left to settle what would become Bluff, Utah.  70 wagons with families went on this trip.  The journey was supposed to take 6 weeks to make a trail 200 miles over country no one had traveled before, it took 6 months to make the trip and 3 babies were born on the trip.  Great history and what a ride.  Enjoy some of the views.

Food

Food for thought.  These wagon track were made over 135 years ago.  These people did not think a thing about what they had to do.  We wouldn’t either.

Purple

Nature has wonderful colors. I could not chose between these so both are posted.

In Disguise

When the prompts were posted my wife told me what they were and I thought she said “in da sky”  I thought this fit.

Shapes

Wonderful open shape in the red rocks, what do you see?

Photographer’s Choice

This is a picture from the top of the hill looking out across the path the wagon train took.

More Photo’s from our trip

I titled this natures mixing bowl.  Large rock become round and small.

The group we went with at lunch. Do you see a trail here?

This is our ride.  Where does the trail go from here?

This is the kind of ride that put my wife off this kind of ride.

IT really scared her.
