||THE R1UE AND TIE TRIP THAT FAILED Janes L. Jacobs Ogden, Utah Senior Citizen Division First Place Anecdote My grandfather loved the old pioneer way of traveling called "ride and tie." When two travelers had but one horse, one would start hiking and the other would ride. The horseman would ride a out afoot- The hiker vould catch up to the horse, mount him and start walking. They continued to ride and tie until they reached Grandpa and I had been logging timber all week On the mountain near Towhead Peak. On Saturday evening we started to ride and tie the Cen miles home to Mt. Pleasant for the weekend. Grandpa told me to ride to the forks of the canyon and tie the horse there, and the forks and hurried on afoot. I thought Grandpa would find the horse and soon ride past ne. He never did. I walked all the way home and worried that he did not cone. Long after dark, Grandpa walked into our home and said, "Golly sakes, boy, what did you do with the horse?" I remorsefully ex-plained that X had ridden a shorter distance than he had told me so he would not have to walk so far. Instead of walking down the road as I expected, he had followed the creek to the forks, so had bypassed the horse and walked the ten miles hose. Next morning my friend took me on his pony up the mountain to the tled-up horse and I rode him home. I resolved never to disobey Grandpa again. Source£ Personal recollections of the author- -15"
