Draper Utah Temple Impressions

I didn’t attend the open house so I have never seen the inside of the temple. There is a great view of the valley below and you can see the Jordan River temple in the distance. You feel like you are at the top of the mountain at the temple site. Situated in a quiet residential area, the grounds are peaceful and calm.
