There is no other way to describe it!
The weather was perfect.
We had no injuries or illnesses.
Everyone was on their best behavior.
All the details were thought of in advance.
All the people on the committee worked their fingers to the bone.
Everyone had an uplifting, fabulously spiritual experience.
Everyone made new friends.
And yes, it was worth the 15 months of blood, sweat, and tears.
All 540 of us had an AMAZING time!

Me - in my super cute pioneer clothes, leading the Women's pull. The ensemble was dubbed - the Thanksgiving outfit.

I know I'm not giving you a lot here -
but 1. I didn't take a SINGLE picture.
2. I cannot adequately describe the trip in words
3. I cannot describe the exhaustion.
4. My house looks like a bomb went off - with pioneer clothes, sleeping bags, paperwork, 38 sharpies, knives, binoculars, coolers, pillows, water bottles and all trek related items littering the entire place.
5. I leave for another trip on Wednesday.
I'll eventually get back here and tell you more.
