In Utah, the 24th of July is a state holiday. We celebrate the arrive of the Mormon Pioneers into the great Salt Lake Valley, lead by the prophet of God, Brigham Young.
I took the kids to a park for a taste of the past. We all used a feather pen. It really works!
Days are hot now. We went home for rest and comfort.
Even the oxen were shod. Can you see the shoes on the post? A special device was made to hold the oxen as this beast of burden can not balance on three legs like a horse can.
