From there we went on another hour to Martin's Cove. This site is much bigger than Sixth Crossing and has more buildings and things to see. We didn't have as much time to spend here since we had to get back for Andy to go to football practice. We saw Devil's Gate and Split Rock Mountain. We really wished we would have had time to hike to Martin's Cove, which is about 30 minutes by foot passed the Visitor Center. There is where many of the pioneers are buried and on the Sweetwater River bank the church has put up 4 large statues of young men representing the four young men who carried most of the Martin company across the Sweetwater. We will definitely need to go back.

|This is Martin's Cove and Lucy and Peter thought they were funny pretending to be a part of the statue!|
|Lucy really liked the handcarts and wanted to push them all day long!|
|The wind was REALLY blowing hard!|
|I have to sneak photos of Andy, he doesn't like me to take them.|
