Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 123
Description Of course the tithing is not exacted from the Gentiles, and the Mormon roads are of great service to our miners for the carriage of their heavy freights. And, equally of course, the Mormons feel a little like the elder brother in the parable; seeing the prodigal's caravan rolling to the mines, where they cannot go. SOUTHERN RIM OF THE BASIN We were told to prepare for eighteen miles of rough road when we left Kannarra, and we certainly encountered them. We were fairly in the rocks, and the lava blocks are the flintiest stones I ever heard ring against horse-shoe and wheel-tire. The air was so clear that every object stood out in stereoscopic relief. The view was perpetually changing as our horses brought us abreast of openings in the gray mountain-wall on our left, revealing glimpses of a crowded world of red and yellow crags and peaks beyond. More golden sunshine seemed to rest on them than fell on us outside. For me to say that they were unnaturally vivid in color and harsh in their contrasts, would only signify that I was used to the gentle outlines and soft hues of Nature at home. Moses led his people forty years through such scenery as this. Afterwards, we seemed to have come upon a great sloping down or moorland, sparsely studded with yuccas. Fairly tired out with gorgeous landscape and the constant use of epithetic adjectives, I had thrown myself back on the cushions, thinking, "Now for an uninteresting drive, I am glad of it," when the Kingdom, also has numerous references to community projects being built through donated labor.
