Day 43-Last day on Lake Powell


I am getting use to this easy life on Lake Powell. Can we stay longer Stephen? Oh just kidding. It is time to move on and tomorrow we will. Bob cooks a great breakfast. Then we have a moment of silence in commemoration of September 11, 2001. Then we carry on with our lives. We continue the Southern Teams Public Land Journey.

My thoughts for today:
I am proud to be an American.
I am thankful for all the opportunities that exist in America.
I am thankful for all my family and my friends.


Tonight Sharon and Allen Malmquist

Started this program on the Centennial of the Hole in the Rock

Mormons settled in Utah
66 miles up from Waheap canyon
Rock has been removed from the top of the rock
83 wagons went thru the rock the hole in the rock
Quotations from the diaries
No photos from the Utah 1880’s
Utah in the 1880’s
Family reunion in Bluff, Utah

About our trek when we settled in Bluff
Follow the call of Bringham Young in Utah
Bringham Young’s colonization program
Southeastern corner, across the Colorado River
South to Lee’s Ferry, then north to Navajo Country
Roads suitable to horse back but not with wagons, lots of road building

The hole in the rock pioneers usually became rich, due to the cattle market
Bluff had a higher per capita than Salt Lake City even
They made 3 trips up and down Hole in the Rock
Then they found Hall’s Crossing as the thoroughfare
