We hit the road early on Saturday morning for our drive to Salt Lake City. We stopped for lunch at Mom's Cafe in Salina, Utah, not realizing that it was a well-known place. This National Geographic poster was one of the many items on the wall.
We made it to Temple Square by 2:30, in time to join the 3:00 tour. Our guides were two young women. They took us into three buildings and told us some of the history of the Latter Day Saints.
|The temple -- can't go in, of course|
|Guides outside the Tabernacle|
|The famous tabernacle organ -- I was the only one who knew there were more than 10,000 pipes|
|Inside Assembly Hall two pianists were practicing for a concert|
The temperature was in the upper 90s and we were very happy to get to our hotel, which was only about a half mile from Temple Square. Tomorrow we head for Reno.
