Salt Lake City

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

Assembly Hall

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.
