Title Her First Camping Trip
Description HONORABLE HENTIOH ANECDOTE HSR FISST CAMPIHG TRIP Jessie Oldroyd 118 South State, Box 153 Fountain Green, Utah 84632 It was autumn time. . .colorful, warn, and wild berry picking time, beckoning folks into canyons and mountains. Our Father, John, was a Fountain Green sheepman and loved the out-of-doors and nature, while our new mother, a little lady from England, recently coming to America, had had no camping experience and knew little of the Utah and Sanpete Mountains. When our father suggested a canping trip up Log Canyon, we were delighted, my brother and I, and also our niece and nephew, who loved to be with us. Grandpa was so special! When fun we would have! Soon preparations were made and we were on our way. We ran up hill and down, climbed on rocks, climbed the trees, and called out to hear the echo of our voices. Then, there were the berries, service berries and chokecherries. We ate a lot more than we picked to take home, and you should have seen our hands and faces,..all stained with the purple and blue sticky juices, Would we ever get them cleaned? Evening same, the air became cooler* and E'.ther said, "Time to make Our beds before it gets dark, >,ho will be first in bed?" "Do we have to sleep on the ground?" Mother asked. She was a little worried, but we thought sleeping on the ground was fun. During the night, a sleepless mother asked, "John, are there bears here in the canyon?" "Yes, black ones and brown ones," he answered. Again, "John, Are there lions up here?" 11
