As I was bouncing ideas around for the subject of today’s polygamy photo gallery, something from Rebecca Musser’s new book, “The Witness Wore Red,” came to mind.

She quotes Warren Jeffs as saying there will be no competitive games in Heaven as he bans more and more recreational activities from the lives of his followers.

Oh yeah, recreation. Sounds like something we can comb through the archives looking for. Here are photos of people we’ve met along the way recreating in their own ways. Some competitive, some solo and some creative.

These photos range from 2005 to 2007 and cover communities and families in Utah, Arizona and British Columbia.
