Winter Amusements

Hello Dear Reader,
The Carter family lived on the side of the mountain in Spring Canyon. It snowed quite a bit the winter they lived there and Grandpa (Wes) had a little sled. I remember his telling me that he could go out his front door, get on his sled and ride all the way to school. Of course, in the afternoon, he had to pull the sled up the mountain to get home.

That winter he made himself a pair of skis out of barrel staves. There was an old coal dump not far from where they lived. Wes went there and skied down the dump on his homemade skis. He had left his friends in Provo but amused himself and created some memories of the months they lived in Spring Canyon.
