We took a trip to St. George as a family. My aunt Elaine, my maternal grandpa Floyd, and my aunt and uncle Brent and Diane met us there. On our way to St. George, we stopped at Cove Fort. I have been before, but it has been many years. My husband and children have never been before. I am so glad we stopped. First, we watched a film that told about the Hinckley family's call to settle at Cove Fort and the many guests they had there. The film shared some of their experiences. Then we were able to actually walk through the fort with the missionary that was guiding us.
This tree has lived twice as long as its typical life expectancy. But it is dying. Our guide told us that the Church would be pulling them down in a couple of weeks, so they won't be there next time we visit.
