A visit to the Mormon buildings in Salt Lake

Sunday, June 14, 2015

We didn't visit for religious reasons, heck we needed a break in our drive. So after leaving Grand Teton and dropping off the youngsters, we drove to Salt Lake City on our way to the canyons. Where could we see famous architecture and a bit of history? Mormon Temple, Tabernacle and Assembly.

Beautiful gardens



The biggest set of pipes I've ever seen!

The buildings were pretty and we took a tour of Brigham Young's house and gardens.

Thanks to the nice sisters who took us on the tour. All of the people we dealt with made us feel welcome.
Assembly hall.

The mall adjacent to our hotel had some interesting water features.

    I love architecture. It was my dad's thing. He designed houses and buildings. Very nice and I loved the gardens too which my maternal grandma was into.

    My niece lives in Holladay, UT, so my sister has been to see these sights, too. Gorgeous photos... and since my sis is into the family tree / ancestry stuff... well, if you are, you know these folks have a lock on the record keeping! emoticon
