One of My Favorite Things in Salt Lake City



One of the things that I did while I was in Salt Lake City for Convention last week was meet up with a fellow stamper and tour the Temple Square.  I'm a huge history buff and have been tracing my family tree for about 10 years.  The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the most extensive genealogy collection in the country.  I've used their website for years and was also able to spend time in their library while in Utah last week. 

The pictures here show the Temple itself which was completed in 1893, after 40 years of labor and difficulties.  Over the next few weeks you will see just as many pictures from the grounds here as you will from the convention itself. 

I created this page for the MDS Monday challenge...which I may actual be late submitting to!  Don't forget to jump over and take a look at all of the talented people over there!

  2. You are so good... went to Convention and had time for MDS Monday too! I love Temple Square as well, but I only saw it in a blur this year when I ran through one morning. Love your clean background and focus on the photos.

  3. Thank you! I wanted the focus to be on the pictures and the text because it left such an impression on me!
