We left Utah on Sunday.
We drove through St. George, UT (southern corner of Utah) & stopped at the St. George LDS temple.
It’s a beautiful temple, especially when you consider it was completed in 1877, a time when St. George, like many Western cities, was an isolated desert town.
One of the things I love about visiting LDS temple grounds is the attention to detail. The grounds are always immaculate & well-manicured.
Driving through Arizona to get to Vegas. Not much to see. Mostly rocks, canyons. Nothing like Washington.
Even though I get carsick when I read in the car, I took the time to finish Little Bee. It’s beautifully written, & I fell in love with the intelligent, wise, & courageous, main character, Little Bee. Has some foul language & grown up themes, but the narrative & themes of the book–redemption, renewal, hope–are what make this book worthwhile.
We sang lots of songs. LOTS. It’s the one thing that keeps Salem happy.
Getting into Las Vegas. A bit of mild culture shock. Everything is so, Lady Gaga–big, in your face, artificial.
After Vegas we went to San Diego. Now we’re in L.A. at Knott’s Berry Farm.
Many more pictures to come!
