Wagons Ho Teaches Western History

During the annual Wagons Ho educational event Tuesday at Atkinson Park in Ketchum, Cal Clevenger, of Caldwell, prepares to unveil Dutch-oven beef stew and biscuits made from scratch by 89 fourth-graders from Hemingway Elementary and Carey schools. From journal writing, making buttons and sawing logs to leather stamping, washing dishes and starting fires, kids learned how pioneers made do while on wagon trains heading west in the 1880s. Clevenger and his wife, Marla, have hosted Wagons Ho for 17 years, and do 50 of the events a year. The event is supported by a grant from the Blaine County Education Foundation. Photo by Willy Cook
