Salt Lake City and Park City Utah

After spending the night in Lava Hot Springs, ID, we continued south into another new state for us, Utah. Our first stop was Temple Square in Salt Lake City, where we received a tour and learned a little more about the Mormon religion. The decorative windows in many of the buildings were so colorful that I had to take photos of them!

You can’t go into the actual Temple unless you are Mormon and attending a special ceremony.

We went into the Tabernacle building, in which there is a huge organ. We were impressed to learn about the acoustics of the room which allow for everyone inside to hear the person at the front without the use of amplifiers.

The gardens on the grounds are very pretty.

We also went inside the Assembly Hall building. There is another large organ in this building as well.

Finally, we visited the Conference Center, which is huge and seats 21,000 people. It too has a large organ in front.

Before leaving Salt Lake City, we checked out a road side attraction that I had read about. It is an art installation at the Salt Palace Convention Center.

From there, it was on to our next stop in Park City, UT. Originally I wanted to go on the Alpine Coaster, but it wasn’t open, so we chose to ride the Alpine Slide. We got to ride the ski lift to the top of the slide as well.

At the top, we had to pull our sleds over to the actual slide and we tested them out while we were waiting for our turn.

Zachary also had to give his a full inspection to see how it worked.
