Cameron and I had the opportunity to take part in some of the Pioneer Trek the youth of our church went on. In short the time we were there, we forged a river, hiked through a stream and witnessed what is possible when young people come together for a common purpose.
Jeff and Cameron.
The hand carts they pushed and pulled.
For the record, we cheated and slept inside our tent for the night.
My best last minute pioneer apparel.

Cameron trekking across.
The river crossing went amazingly smooth. No handcarts were overturned in the process.
Hiking up the stream.
The sun was shining, the scenery was beautiful and the youth were inspiring.
