Mormon Pioneer Trail - Friday, October 8, 2010

As the Mormon Pioneers began their epic 1,300 mile trek from Nauvoo, Illinois, to the Salt Lake Valley, they didn't know that the steepest and longest sustained ascent - and the highest elevation of the entire journey- would occur at the end of the trail, on the day they first caught glimpse of their destination. Bob and Jim Ford hiked the 9.1 historic trail from Mormon Flats to LIttle Dell Reservoir in a rain storm. Bob was always thinking of his great-grandfather Valentine Valentine (Wallentin Wallentinsen) who arrived in Brigham City in October 1853. This portion of the trail was used until 1861.
