Hoping to Give you just a little taste of a Valley that I love.

I wanted to include a close up of the pioneer sculpture - it has special meaning to me personally. There were to handcart companies which met with particularly difficult circumstances: The Martin and Willey Handcart Companies. One of my ancestors was a small girl in the Willey Company. Their story is compelling and amazing. I found a site that has an incredible description, including many photos of the areas where the events took place. It is a miracle that anyone survived.
