A couple of weeks ago my brother and sister-in-law came for a weekend visit and we got to hike up to Martin's Cove and Devils gate about an hour North of Rawlins. This is part of the Mormon/Oregon Trail that is famous for the LDS pioneers who crossed the plains. The Martin Handcart Company got an extremely late start in the fall and got caught in a severe winter storm in November and they had to take shelter in this Cove they found (hence Martin's Cove). They waited 5 days to move and were rescued but not after at least half of their company died from exposure. Such an incredibly sad tale, but one of courage, faith and hope. Somethings I definitely could use more of.
