Photo Essay: Celebrating Pioneer Day at Anvil Draw
Fun in the sun!
July 24th is a state holiday in nearby Utah.
Pioneer Day commemorates the arrival of Brigham Young and the first Mormons to Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. Those pioneers couldn’t have imagined a day like this!
Lots of changes since 1847 . . .
Released from their jobs, people flock to Flaming Gorge Reservoir to play.
They bring their toys and comforts of home.
Our camp by the beach at Anvil Draw, Wyoming, is a front row seat for watching people celebrate the holiday.
RVs make possible these consecutive days of non-stop fun.
Music and the drone of motorboats and jet skis fill the air.
Fun is going on behind our camp, too!
I catch this boy as he roars around in circles.
While many seek the excitement and thrill of speed, others take a quieter, more relaxing approach to fun.
Judging from the size of the motor, these guys can leave their fishing spot in a hurry.
The celebrants are up late each night as fireworks are shot into the sky over the reservoir.
Next post … Bridget and Spike have fun at the beach, too!
