The Charles C. Rich Family Association is sponsoring the Charles C. Rich Memorial Hike and Dinner on Saturday, April 12, to honor the dedication and devotion of Charles C. Rich and other Bear Lake Valley pioneers, and to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Rich family’s move to Bear Lake.
Hikers will meet at the Paris Tabernacle at 9 a.m. The hike will begin near the Paris Ice Caves in Paris Canyon and end near the Aspen Ridge Scout Camp in Cub River Canyon, a distance of approximately 10 miles. A Dutch oven dinner will be held at 5 p.m. at the Franklin, Idaho, LDS Stake Center. Registration and additional information is at CCRich.org.
After being called by Brigham Young to lead the settlement of the Bear Lake Valley, Elder Rich moved his family to the newly created town of Paris, Idaho, in 1864.
Elder Rich had duties as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve that required him to travel to Salt Lake City to attend general conference in April and October each year. He was determined to fulfill his obligations, even though it meant walking over the mountains from Paris to Franklin, Idaho, a distance of approximately 30 miles.
