They say it's in their genes, but Heather and I say not in the genes that we wear. Our third daughter has run several 50 mile races and she just completed her second run of "THE BEAR" It is a 100 mile endurance run from Logan Utah to Fish Haven Idaho starting Sept. 28th 2012.. No the run is not up the canyon on the highway. This is a wilderness race over the mountains and through the woods. And no this is not a relay. They run the race completely on their own start to finish.......no tag team woosy stuff. Lowest elevation is 4,860 ft. Highest elevation is 9,060 ft. above sea level. And get this. Going over the ridges gives them a total of 21,980 feet of climbing. And no....they don't stop to sleep. Start is 6:00 am and through the day and through the night and through the next day with a 36 hour cut off.
The above photo was taken as the trail passed through a recreational lake area over a man made groomed dam. Trails in the wilderness are not this way. They are raw and hazardous strewn with logs, rocks and the occasional bear, wolf or mangy moose.

Our Missionaries from Hungary certainly keep us busy with weddings. On July 11, 2012 Austin Bennion was married to Kayla Shay Miles in the Bountiful Utah Temple
The evening garden reception was held at the Bennion home in Ogden Utah
Good to see missionary Apgood with a beautiful lady at his side. Oh how we remember that hot summer day in Kaposvar. The day of our Young Single Adult Water Wars. Even Zone Leaders didn't escape escape a total drenching.
