16 Miles

I only have a minute before my battery runs out on my computer but it was cold again last night. I only have 16 more days before I enter the valley.  My body is worn out and could use a rest.  Nothing significant happened today other than I didn’t even walk 2 mph today because my back was cramping all day long.  It’s always something.


I crossed the Little Sandy River today and this is where Brigham Young first met Jim Bridger and was advised by Jim not to settle the Great Salt Lake and that he would give $1000 for the first bushel of corn that would ever be grown in the valley.  Well ol’ Jim never paid up on his deal.

Walking original two rut dirt trail is wearing me out.
