Beyond the HorizonCan you imagine all the sights the pioneers saw on their way out west? If they traveled from the East Coast to California, they would have seen things that they couldn’t have even imagined. First, there were the great plains. Pioneers wrote that looking out over the prairies was like looking out over the ocean. There was grass as far as the eye could see, the wind blowing through it, causing it to move like waves. Then, the pioneers crossed the Missouri River and began to see signs of the Badlands, strange hills that were just a hint of the wild, rocky Utah landscape they would cross in the weeks to come. The life of a pioneer wasn’t easy. They faced hunger, thirst, an endless landscape that was all too easy to get lost in, and dangerous wild animals. But we still have to wonder what it was like to see a whole new world unfold right beyond the horizon, day after day!
