On a foggy morning, commemorative wagon train moves past Winter Quarters cemetery on its way out of Omaha, Neb., to retrace steps of Mormon pioneers. None of the few tombstones in the cemetery are from the pioneer period. Inset, the Randy and Sherralyn Petersen family from Blue Springs (Mo.) 1st Ward, are ready to make the trek. Family members, from left, are Bonnie, Merrilee, Sarah, Russell, Christian, Josh, Grant, Neal, and Sister Petersen. Husband Randy was outside the wagon making last-minute preparations.
