Just got back from 4 days in the wilderness, photographing the 2009 East Stake TREK, an activity for the youth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where they reenact for 4 days the handcart trek made by the early pioneers headed to the Salt Lake Valley. Although they do have some "comforts", like porta-pottys, prepared meals, water and gatorade, they don't shower for 4 days, and pull handcarts over 12 miles of trails, 1/2 of which is uphill (it feels like 3/4 of the way).
To see the show, click here, or the photo, or on the title. Enjoy!
