Pix Of The Day: Life & Times Of Pioneer Families

WHERE: Harrisburg, Washington County, Utah. WHAT: early Utah Pioneer cabin.
MAP: Harrisburg reef country. Thumbnail click pops-up larger image.
The expansionist aspirations of the LDS (Mormon) Pioneers, following their arrival in the Salt Lake Valley, were furthered by expeditions south into the Great Basin. Strategic forts and strongholds were established, and Harrisburg was one in the far south of the Territory. Settlers were then despatched to colonize the area; the Adams family were one of nine sent into the area. You may read the history from the nearby billboard. We also have the bloom of the day, photographed nearby, for the gardeners and botanists among our visitors.
Astronomers, meteorologists, and clock enthusiasts among our visitors, may be interested in visiting the CSC [Clear Sky Clock] service, which has data (shown above left) for Leeds, a town adjacent to Harrisburg along the reef.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
