This Is The Place


Last week Gary, Jaycee, and I spent the day in Salt Lake City at the “This Is The Place” state park. 

DSCN3946This row of handcarts made me thankful for the pioneers.  I don’t think I could have put my belongings in one and  then walked all those miles.

DSCN3965There are lots of cabins you walk through.  It’s fun to see the old furniture.  DSCN4016 We had to explain what a camber pot was to Jaycee.  I think she was shocked!  I don’t think I would want to go outside in the middle of the night to take care of business. ..especially in the cold weather.DSCN4009Of course I was interested in the sewing machine and old quilts.

Their beds don’t look that comfortable.  They would tie ropes on the bed frame.  The mattresses were stuffed with straw.  And they were small, not even full size.  (yes I love my king size mattress).
