Pioneer by Robert Barrett
About this Image:
Though many pioneers experienced hardship and tragedy on their journey, not all memories were sad. The broad prairies were covered with lush grass and dotted with larkspur, verbena, and geranium and offered vistas of dramatic beauty. My own great-grandmother Elna Jorgensen crossed these plains with her family as a teenager. Her family left Sweden for Utah in October of 1855, but they did not enter the Salt Lake Valley until September of 1857. I imagine that Elna, like many others, took time to appreciate the vast beauty of the midwestern plains.
