Abby is a true source of entertainment--especially at Girls Camp.
This year we spent the week at Camp Rebekah in the beautiful Heber Valley Camp.
The lake was perfect.
Heber Valley was replete with wildlife. One evening a buck plopped himself down in the brush just a few yards from our large pavilion and stayed there for quite some time.
A doe and her fawn could be seen almost every night.
Our very first morning we awoke to the loud blast of an air horn. A bear had been spotted in camp and everyone was to remain in their cabins until he was far far away. Groggily I sat up in bed and stared out the window by my bunk. Within seconds I saw a brown mass move amongst the blurry forest backdrop. Frantically I grabbed my glasses and there he was! He even stood up on his hind legs for a brief moment before he lumbered off into the trees. Amazingly, one of our camp cooks snapped this photo of him right after he had overturned a trash can. (My cabin is one of two hiding behind the cabin on the left.)
Even though it rained almost every day, Camp was a great success. Many faithful and dedicated women and young women made it happen.
