2010 Senior Outing

It was hard to believe that all of the Senior Couples from all over Mongolia gathered for this fun annual Senior Outing. We enjoyed visiting with each other and seeing some wonderful sights in Mongolia. We visited the 13th Century Encampment and the Chinggis Statue. We also enjoyed horseback riding, sleeping in a ger, cllimbing Turtle Rock or going to the monastery near Turtle Rock. Later, President Batbold, his wife and son Bold and Bataar made a delicious khorkhog dinner for us on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar. They had packed beef with hot stones into a milk can and then spent hours cooking it for us over a bed of hot coals. They also had a lovely meal of potatoes, bread, and a tomato, cucumber, and cilantro salad. We laughed and visited in a grove of trees on the bank of the river. After dinner we roasted marshmallows and made smores. Then we had a going-home meeting for Elder and Sister Atkins and President and Sister Andersen. It was a wonderful diversion and we really enjoyed spending the time together.
