Title The Great Depression Years
Description ourselves. That afternoon we drove to Orderville. Here we rented another cabin ($1.00 per night). Rested, after a good night's sleep, we continued on toward the North Rim of the Grand Canyon where we viewed the depth, the colors and the silence of God's work. Hearing from a traveler that gas was more expensive farther on, we decided to forego the pleasure of the view from the South Him and returned to the silence of the beautiful Kaibab Forest where we spent the night. Mext morning there were deer feeding near our beds. Studying our map we decided Pipe Springs was a must. The fort stood alone among cedars and pines. The tour of the fort was free. Here was real history. Asking about accommodations, we were told we could camp just anywhere we wanted outside the heavy walls. We pitched our camp by the large pool of water. Hext morning we found our beds surrounded by the largest lizards I had ever seen. We must visit St. George. We asked directions and were told the mailman came daily across a new road to the south, built by convicts from the Arizona State Prison. The road was narrow and dirt, but we had faith. It was a one-vehicle road that led down into a lonely, dusty box canyon. Steep it certainly was, and if we had met that mailman I dread to think what could have happened. At Hurricane we bought a 10-cent loaf of bread. When we cut it, the crust stayed by itself and the inside of the loaf rolled into a wad of dough. In St. George we found no place to camp, so rented a cabin which cost us $3*00 per night. Too expensive, but for one night... Sunday we attended church services in the Tabernacle, and the next morning we had the audacity to ask if we could visit the Temple. We were given a personal tour, from top to bottom, of that historic building with only our Temple recommends for security. 48
