|On December 31 (P-Day) the missionaries took a day trip to|
San Vicente. This is the town where Butch Cassidy and Sundance
Kid where gunned down and killed.
|We had drivers take us in these Land Cruisers. It was a 3 hour|
trip one way. We drove on mountain roads. We were on the
top of the mountains.
|This was our first stop. We are looking to the north. Bolivia|
has lots of rugged, beautiful mountains.
|Another view from the road. This is looking toward the small|
town called Chifloca. This is where Lloyd served about
nine months during his first mission in Bolivia. The town
is located just around the point of the mountain in the distance.
|This is our group. Elder Mero, Elder Bradshaw, Hermana Bradshaw,|
Elder Mitchell, Avila, Hermanas Coombs, Garcia and Elder Bell.
|These are some homes we passed on the way. Our driver told us|
that miners and their families live here.
|This is a photo of Butch Cassidy.|
|They had some guns on display. You could take them off the wall|
and handle and look at them. This is one. They told us the real
guns of Butch and Sundance would be worth about
2 million dollars if they were found today.
|Everyone had fun taking pictures with the guns. Even Elder Bradshaw|
|A famous photo of Butch and Sundance. This was taken in the United States.|
|They also had some hats you could try on.|
|We all wanted to see where Butch Cassidy was buried. The gate|
to the Cemetery was locked. So we climbed up a board and
got on top of the wall to get inside. This is his grave. There are
lots of stories about who is really buried here.
|In the middle of the cemetery there is an old adobe|
arch. We think is was probably the gate at one time
and they made the cemetery larger.
|Another view of the cemetery.|
|Elder Bradshaw and Mitchell had fun talking about these outlaws story.|
They decided to act out what people say happened to Sundance and
|The house where the army found Butch and Sundance is now a|
church. We ate lunch on the tailgate of the Land Cruisers here and
then it was time to headback to Tupiza.
mountains. You can see the road below that we are traveling on.
Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid rode their horses over these
mountains to get to San Vicente. It is many miles and rugged country.
|Another look at the road. We had a fun day. We were tired,|
dusty and a little sunburned.
