WE MADE IT! After four days of trekking (and mosquitoes) we reached Zion!
Flash, my trusty and faithful stead, has gone to pasture at his new home with Robby Morrow…a well-deserved rest! I know he will be well looked after.
And alas, my ‘stache is gone. But Sister Boss is quite happy now.
Special thanks to Ceris Backstrom, Jared Orr, Courtney Bennett and Ethan Rowe who did such a great job with the STRAIGHT razor! Most of you young men won`t appreciate for some time yet what they did for me – it’s a scary thing.
Finally, both Sister Boss and I want to express our heartfelt gratitude for the opportunity to have participated in such a great event! It was our HONOUR and PRIVILEGE to have spent this past week Trekking with y`all and we will cherish our experiences with you forever. This was one of those events that we all will look back on and share with our posterity – saying “I remember when I was on Trek…” We hope that each of you found a piece of your own personal Zion as you trekked; something you can hold on to forever to remind you of who you are and what you can accomplish. We also hope you felt the spirit and know that you have a loving Heavenly Father and that with His help YOU CAN DO HARD THINGS!
We want to thank all the leaders and support folks (too many to name here); all those who spent so many hours planning, preparing and sacrificing to make it all happen. We are so appreciative of all the work you did! And of course, to the folks of the Cherry Grove Ward – YOU`RE THE BEST!
Happy trails to y’all until we meet again…
Boss and Sister Boss (a.k.a. Pres. and Sis. Kristensen)
