one afternoon we went for a drive. one where you keep the map close but you hardly reach for it. we drove through the national elk refuge and through the tiny town of kelly before turning off on to a gravel road. a few miles down, we ended up at historic mormon row. near the turn of the 19th century, leaders of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints sent families from utah and idaho to establish new communities and support their expanding population. one hundred years later, mormon row was added to the national register of historic places. 

we walked around the homesteads, watched the horses and bison wander about, and admired the moulton barn before heading back. i will forever be missing these views.


  1. wow, this place is breathtaking! I am loving following along on your journeys.

    if i may offer a correction, it's latter-day saints not ladder day :]

    1. ha!! so glad you pointed that out. my auto-correct does this to me more times than i'd like to admit :) thank you so much for your kind words, jessica!

  2. Wow! These photos are amazing. I wish I was there so badly. Your photos always make me so jealous.


please feel free to say hello - i'd love to meet you!
