We went with Greg Nettleship and his son John to the Peak District today on Boxing Day. Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesman would receive gifts, known as a "Christmas box", from their bosses or employers. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday that generally takes place on 26 December. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and other Commonwealth nations. For us it was a day off where we could enjoy the day with the missionaries. 
 Elder Krylborn love to talk hunting with Elder Allen
 We parked at the top of the hill. The Nettleships like to call this "Pride Rock."

 John and Elder Juran
 John, Elder Williams, Elder Brown and Elder DeShazer
 Here are the Elders that work with us in the Slovak Branch. They REALLY enjoyed a day off. 

 John and Greg Nettlship with Elder Williams and Elder Brown. 

 Our two favorite Czech Elders.
 The two newbees
We were above the clouds and it was wonderful to look at.

This is "Pride Rock" like in Lion King.

Everything was wet so the Elders did not want to sit on it but I made them.
This is a dam with a walk way across it. The fog made it feel mystical.
Do you know what this is? It is a spill way. When the water gets to full it goes into this spill way and out the bottom of the dam. I would have never guessed.  
Do you know what this is? The Rod of Iron. Look it up! Do you see the mist of darkness?
They are on the right path.
This is not the tree of life stone. It is a stone showing the river, the dam and towns never by, a flood and town underwater. 

Drive in the van back to Sheffield.
