A July 2000 trip
to Salt Lake City by camera-gal
Quote: Temple Square is the biggest attraction in this holy town. We had quite a time navigating when we visited because of all the road construction. This was before the Olympics.
Temple Square is a must-see. The Morman Temple has the best god-fearing, awe-inspiring architechture where you will learn about their history and culture.
The Great Salt Lake is big. I wish we'd had more time to stop and swim. I wanted to see if the legend was true--There is so much salt in the Great Salt Lake that it is impossible to drown.
Two TVs in the suite, a large bathroom, two queen size beds, a snack and beverage bar...what else could you ask for.

You'll be amazed by the beauty of the temple. It's so big. And extremely hard to fit into a photograph. The granite slabs used to build the Salt Lake City Temple were brought from the mountains. It took the Mormans 40 years to complete it. The temple is the center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
One of the only buildings non-Mormans are allowed into is the tabernacle. The dome-shaped building was first built as an assembly hall for those of the Morman religion. The sound quality is astounding since one can hear every word spoken from the pulpit without a microphone. Eleven thousand six hundred and twenty three pipes make up one of the finest instruments in the world--the pipe organ.
Upon entering Temple Square, we saw many guides giving tours. We began to listen to one. The tour was great because it was filled with so many interesting facts. The only part I objected to was the short lecture on Mormanism and how wonderful it is. However, I respect the fact that I entered their place of worship and should be considerate.
