Winter Quarters

So I was lucky enough to find myself in Omaha last week. Wow, lots to do (BTW, anyone who knows of anything fun to do in those parts, let me know. I get to go back for a full week soon, and boy I'm excited.) During my stay, I stopped over at the LDS Church's Winter Quartersmemorial, a site that commemorates the thousands of Mormon pioneers who stayed the winter while awaiting better weather waiting to go to Utah. They walked 1,200 miles and were kicked out of their homes on multiple occasions. The site, though small, was very well kept and very peaceful. It's the first LDS history site I've been able to visit, so was fun.

My sister-in-law (chris's wife) served her mission at that visitor center. It sounds like a very special place, it's cool you got to go.
