A Natural High

Contributor: kdbulloch Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

Every outing with Uncle Royce was an exhilarating adventure. I was a "city slicker" niece that stayed a summer with the Young family after my parents divorced. I learned what real good clean natural fun was like that summer. We climbed mountains, went swimming, rode tubes down the Snake River and I rode in the back of a pickup all over Kanab. I learned to not care one bit what my hair looked like and when we we were hot, my cousins and I jumped in the animal trough. Uncle Royce was bishop of the ward while I was there and worked cutting trees in the Kaibab forest. He was never too busy to have fun with family and a few extras. Uncle Royce was tall and slender. He ran a lot. I recall that he ran to work. He had very little hair on his head and usually wore a hat. He wore a t-shirt that said, The Lord made only a few perfect heads and the rest He put hair on." He spoke with a Southern Utah accent. He said "carn" for corn. He whittled wood when he sat. He would make chains of loops and a cage with a ball in it. He was honest. He worked very hard. He had a beautiful singing voice. I understood the Sabbath better because of Uncle Royce. He made sacrifices to be home from work on Sunday and told stories of learning that lesson as a youth and deciding not to play basketball on that day. Uncle Royce knew how to push people along a hard and rough hike with a watermelon strategically placed at the end and lunch along the way. He took them places all over the mountains. Those hikes built many people. I learned that good clean fun could be experience in nature from Uncle Royce. I had so much fun on those adventures!
