The women arrive weary but joyous after the Women’s Pull event on the second day of the trek. Thanks to Christian and Audrey Lybbert for these photos. Post your thoughts about the Women’s Pull in the comments section below.

Those who participated in the Ephrata LDS Stake Bing Canyon Trek from June 27 to 29 had a wonderful, faith-promoting experience. This blog will help share the experience with others and remind those who participated of the event. If you have photos of the trek, please send your best 3 or 4 to this address: I am putting together a slide show and video of the trek.

Also, here are photos of each local ward or branch, please put the names of the participants in the comments section. Thank you so much for your help. Keep following this blog to see more updates.

What’s in your bucket?

Trek bucket

Each Participant needs their own 5-gal bucket with lid, to put the following items in: (note: plate = pie pan)

Metal dishes, bug spray, chapstick, comb, bandaids, toothbrush/paste, needed medication, sunscreen, scriptures, journal, extra shoes, rain poncho, hat, bandana, water bottle, extra clothes, underclothes, and 5 socks & gloves. (PJ’s can be in your bedroll) Optional: camera, pocketknife.

Also, you will need a bedroll that includes:

Sleeping pad, sleeping bag, blanket, pajamas, and coat for evenings – preferably all layered and rolled up into one bed roll, and in garbage bag – label it!

Your bedroll and buckets will be checked in at your ward buildings Wed. night, 7:00, June 26, (unless otherwise noted in your ward). Bucket contents should be checked to ensure all required items are packed, and labeled.

FYI: There is an all-day Girls Camp Clinic at the Ephrata Stake Center, Saturday, June 22.
