From Sarah Heki

I’m the daughter of Shari & Aaron Heki & lived in TRV from the late 70s to early 80s. It was life, it was the only life we as kids knew….rather secluded to the “real world”. An hour to town “Rock Springs” a trip we’d take twice a month, one direction….and a 1/2 hr the other way to school and church in “Wamsutter” was the world we lived in. It was as much enjoyable as challenging & I was very sad when we moved because living so closely with the same families we had some very dear friends….I have many many memories & wouldn’t trade it for any other upbringing.

    I’m sorry it took me so long to publish this for you. Most Table Rockers have been posting comments, rather than articles, so this slipped by me for a while. Thank you for sharing it.

      Thanks for sharing your story, Mike. Many of us spent a lot of time in the little bar at that gas station, including many hours on nights when we knew travelers would be needing help or shelter.
