I was traveling back from a vacation in Zion National Park with my brother Mike taking him home along Bangerter Highway. I saw the Oquirrh Mountain temple under construction so I exited and took this photograph. It is located on a rise just off the highway so the temple is going to be quite a sight when it is illuminated at night.
Monday 12th May 2008 found Jill, Paul, me, Adelaide, and Steven ready to set off for a few days of vacation. We were leaving zion and heading for Zion. We left Kaysville (zion) to stop by West Jordan (not zion) to pick up my brother Mike. Onward then to Zion National Park for some camping and hiking. Mike and I had hard duty in securing and staying in motel rooms in case it rained.
We took a lot of photographs but here are just a few so you get a flavor of what we did.
On our trip down at Scipio it started to snow so those motel rooms were looking very desirable. The snow cleared by the time we got to Zion.
Taking our own picture ready for an assault on the nearest peak. Left to right: Paul, Mike, Jill, Adelaide, Steven, and Rick.
Steven is about to ascent the final leg of Angels Landing. The wind was up and that added to the experience.
Unfortunately some of us drew the short straws and were forced to check out the facilities at Camp Comfort.
