Bret and Savanna spent a summer day hiking together to the Pfiefferhorn located up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah. Because of its similar shape to the famous Matterhorn located in the Alps that border Italy and Switzerland, the Pfiefferhorn is also known as the Little Matterhorn. Little did Bret and Savanna know, as they were hiking and creating memories in that location, that years down the road, Savanna would be sent to the location of the actual Matterhorn. The Matterhorn "just happens" to be part of Savanna's mission.

Bret sent Savanna a letter this week with these photos and his memories from the hike. As tricky as it is to send a daughter so far away and for such an extended time, we know Heavenly Father is in the details of our lives--even in something as simple as a summer hike!!  He loves us. He wants us to be happy, and He helps us create experiences and memories that are meaningful and eternal.

Happy will be the day that Sorella Dixon sends us a photo of the "real" Matterhorn. She won't be hiking to the top of the Matterhorn and she won't be with her Dad, as shown in the photos below, but the memories will be sweet and the experience very tender.

We love you Sorella!! You got this!!

The top of the Pfiefferhorn

On top of the world!! I am thinking if she can conquer this, 
she can conquer just about anything!

What a beautiful creation--just for us!
