I made a goal this year to visit 50 temples - 50 temples in 2012. So far, I've been to: Salt Lake Temple, Provo Temple, Timpanogos Temple, Draper Temple, Jordan River Temple, and this one is #6 for the year. I was so glad we got to stop here right at sunset!, loved seeing the changing colors in the sky!
^My favorite picture from the evening. In the past, I've always tried to avoid the gate in temple photos, I thought it got in the way. I was excited to find a way to use the gate to add to the photo instead.
Normally, LDS temples have an Angel Moroni with a trumpet on the steeple. It was interesting to see that the St. George temple did not. We asked in the visitor's center and apparently, there are a handful of older temples that still do not. According to ldsChurchTemples.com, "Eight (8) temples do not have an angel Moroni. They are the St. George Utah, Logan Utah, Manti Utah, Laie Hawaii, Cardston Alberta, Mesa Arizona, Hamilton New Zealand, and Oakland California Temples."
Check back tomorrow for photos from Las Vegas!
