2013 LDS of Yuma Arizona Stake Pioneer Trek
3 of 5
About 181 youth and adults from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints participated in the Yuma Arizona Stake Pioneer Trek held recently to honor their ancestors. The group walked through about 25 miles of desert while pulling handcarts and wearing authentic pioneer attire. Each night they camped in the wilderness.
After five days on the trail, the participants boarded buses, â€œwhich would return them to Yuma - and the 21st Century," said Mike Erfert, Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Yuma Mesa Ward.
