This 2016 experience was unique in many ways: not only it gave a marvelous opportunity to all who went (youth and adults alike) to participate in an outpouring of the Spirit of the Lord throughout the three days of activity, but to me also and particularly!: As a cinematographer, this experience gave me the opportunity to see through my lenses and cameras true pioneers, in real life, trekking on, pushing and pulling their lives as we all together went through this particular stretch of land. I could see with spiritual eyes they who died on the trail, they who kept on sacrificing they rations of food to give a better chance to survive those who they loved. I was able to see the suffering of they who kept on going until they couldn’t do it any more and sat on the side of the trail because they were waiting for death to catch on them; as well as the suffering of they who tried to encourage those who sat to catch their breath.
Enjoy this video! Cherish it! Share it with whomever you know! Not only because you may appear in it or somebody you may know, but because we want to preserve the spirit of pioneering! We want to spread the spirit of true worship and about the restoration of the true church.
This 30 minute presentation was prepared to be shown at the fire side commemorating the final activity of the more than 4 months of activities and more than 1 year of preparations and planing.

During June, 2010, The Young Men and Young Women of the Orlando South Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints in Florida traveled to the LDS Deseret Ranch for a journey they called Trek 2010. This LDS Trek 2010 remembers the Pioneer Treks of hand cart companies that traveled west to the Salt Lake Valley in Utah in the 1850’s.

The boys were “mustered” off into the Mormon battalion while the girls remained to push their family handcarts up the hill in the women’s pull. All agreed that this was the most difficult and memorable portion of the 5 day pioneer trek.

We trekked 6 miles around Martin’s Cove one day, then another 6 miles around the Willie rescue sites the next. We funished it all off with a visit to Rock Creek Hallow.
