"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

We visit the Hogs back with Elders Slabbert and Ramsey

We went to the Hogsback Mountains today.  We drove to King William’s Town and inspected the Elders boarding this morning.  Then Elders Slabbert and Ramsey joined us for the preparation day activity.  We went to several of the sites and did two different hikes.  The first was to the Big Tree which is a Yellow Wood tree and is estimated to be over 800 years old.  It started growing before Christopher Columbus was born and the earth was still considered flat.  We also hiked to the Madona and Child Water Fall.  You can see the “Madona and her child” on the rock wall of the falls in the pictures.  Elder Slabbert wanted to go to the Labyrinth which at first was a bit of a disappointment but turned out to be a bit more fun as the Elders raced Sister Thomas to the middle.  Sister Thomas was clever and looked at the Labyrinth (she looked at the center and went backwards from there) before she started and beat the Elders by a long way.  They were running trying to catch up but it did not work out for Elders Slabbert and Ramsey.  It was fun.
