Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

LDS Salt Lake TempleI love walking around the grounds of Temple Square in Salt Lake City. No matter what time of year (except maybe the brilliantly-lit chaos of Christmas), this part of Salt Lake City is calm, quiet, and serene.

    1. Thanks! The building is made from a very light granite. It was finished in the 1890s and a few years ago, they cleaned the years of grime off and most people were surprised at how light the stone really is.

  1. I used to work right across the street from the Salt Lake Temple. I would take walks around it at lunch when the weather was good. I miss Utah! I went to school at Utah State. Go Aggies! But Florida is a long way away. Maybe I will make it back someday.

    1. It’s amazing to stand on the grounds of the Draper Temple and look across the valley. Even though you can’t really see the Salt Lake Temple, you can see the Quirrh Mountain and Jordan River Temples from there. I love living in Utah for the culture and the landscape.But Florida is nice, too. 🙂

      1. The Jordan River Temple is where I first attended the temple. Those other temples were not yet built when I came home in 1992 after my younger boy was killed.

      2. Both boys, actually. Junior died in Tooele, and James died 4 years later here in Florida. Isn’t it wonderful that families are forever? (Speaking of temples)
