Title Sanpete Trails
Description Dancing was an integral part of life for all generations. Fiddler's Green, Dreamland Hall, Millstream, The Bam were sobb of the places where young and old danced until it was strange that the floors didn't give way under them. Here again, the buggy, the early Hodel T Ford, and later, modern cars traveled the happy roads to where the crowds were. In orchards! tall grasses lay flat where young people walked in search of violets in the spring or picked prunes, greengages and apples in the fall. Footprints led along the picket fence, across the street or up the block to the neighbor's houses. They followed ' down the street to the church, where on Sundays families walked, talked, sang and prayed together. Along with the work, the fun and the worshipping also came the learning, avenues that directed active minds to the stories of Gene Stratton Porter, EHgar Allen Foe, Poems of Longfellow, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Eugene Field, that made students aware of scientific facts, ways of doing things better and learning more of the world, terraces that led to foreign countries, to fairyland, to th* ™»n and the stars.

Ephraim and Snow College, with song and ceaseless chatter making the ride merry, a route that led to asking new friends, widening the passageway, finding a bigger world. There were so many pleasant roadways, but some had bushes with thorns blocking the way, many had deep ruts in which to fall or rocks and. boulders to be surmounted. Each generation had streets where sorrow walked with than, where hardships were dark companions, where they walked alone. All of these were the paths through Sanpete County that went around and around, through the valleys, over the hills, into the homes and schools, along grassy walks and rocky ledges. Each generation learned to know them well and. followed them. The first generation followed until their steps were slow and their eyes too dim to see the way. The second aral third generations still follow the well marked roads, while the fourth generation now learns new ways to go, a faster pace to follow, leaving long white highways in the sky. ' Kany have followed the continuous roads that stretch beyond the little sign marked "Sanpete County." ¥hether they return In -13-
