President John Taylor (1808-87) wrote of the Prophet Joseph Smith: "The Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it. ... He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people" (D&C 135:3).

On October 23, 1856, the Willie handcart company made the steep five-mile (8-km) ascent up Rocky Ridge in snow and a howling wind. Though they wrapped themselves in quilts, several died. Yet the company pressed forward with hope and faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, as symbolized by the covering floating over their heads.
