I have to admit Ididn't know much about Utah until we went last month to pick up our family pet. But, what Idiscovered was a state with an amazing history and a historical marketpretty much every exit.
While waiting for Athenato be caught, (Yes she excaped) we were told itwas going to be an hour to an hour and half later than we thought itwas going to be before we could pick up Athena. So, we could see theSt. George Temple from the freeway and since we decided we had sometime, we should go check it out.
WOW! I was amazed at thehistory of this temple. I just always assumedwith the Mormon church and its history in Utah and Salt Lake that theSalt Lake Temple was the first. But in reality the St. George templewas the 3rd, but was actually finished long before the Salt Lake templein Salt Lake City Utah.
Want to find out thehistory behind the Oregon trail and the history ofUtah, I suggest you visit one of the visitors centers at one of thesetemples. They won't do anything other than educate and boy did I get aneducation!
