While in Utah visiting my brother-in-law and the new nieces, we decided to ask what we should see and of course they took us to the most amazing pieces of work in all of Utah, the Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City.
This temple took 40 years to build because they used what they had to build it and they did it without new cranes and heavy machinery. Then you look at the new conference center which is an amazing feat in itself was only built in two years and two months with 21,000 seats and there isn’t a bad one in the place. They did this by designing the building in a whole new way using a 16,500 ton backbone connecting each round ceiling piece to make it stronger than any other building in Utah.
Our first snow of the season
Now, the view from atop of the conference center was so beautiful as the snow had stopped for awhile to give us an amazing view of the mountains. Then touring the grounds and the rest of the tourist centers was really cool finding out the history of certain paintings of Indians who protected Mormons who lived in the area and even how they donated land to all the other churches in the area to show any religion was welcome here and would not be excluded from the area.
If you are ever in Salt Lake, I suggest you take a tour of the grounds and I think you to will be as amazed as I was, but make sure your camera battery is full and your memory chip is empty, because if not, you will be disappointed when you leave.
