Virtual Tour of my Community

Following a move to Kennesaw, GA and then another 15 miles north to Dallas, GA... here are some updated pictures of the community I now live in:

As I do the things on my Bucket List for the Rest of 2011, I'll be posting additional pictures here that don't appear in individual blog posts.  Also look for photos of other interesting things I find in and around Salt Lake City.
The iconic Salt Lake Temple.  I took this photo in April 2009.  No visit to Salt Lake City is complete without a stop at Temple Square to see the Temple and the always changing and amazing grounds here and around the adjacent blocks with the Conference Center and Church Office Building.
Art work made from copper in the Bingham Canyon Mine Visitor's Center.

About the metal in the medals for the 2002 Winter Olympics that were held in Salt Lake City.  A display in the Bingham Canyon Mine Visitor's Center.

Another display from the Bigham Canyon Mine Visitor's Center showing some of the many ways that copper is used in our houses.  You might expect the plumbing parts, but I was really surprised by the insulation, cosmetics and kitty litter!

This, and the next 2 photos are, are a display of toy models (Tonka trucks) of equipment used in the Bingham Canyon Mine.   Awesome little boys toys!

This Is The Place Monument. On July 24, 1847 this is where Brigham Young  stopped to survey the valley below and declared "This is the right place, drive on."

A handcart monument at This Is The Place Heritage Park.  It's a little hard to see because the afternoon was dark and  it was trying to rain a bit... but beyond the handcart you can see a glimpse of Salt Lake City and the Great Salt Lake  in the valley below.  The park is located in the mouth of Emigration Canyon where the pioneers entered the valley.
Joseph Smith and Brigham Young monument.  Joseph laid out the grid for Salt Lake City and was planning the Saints migration when he was martyred.  Brigham led them to Utah and executed the plan.

A friendly little ground squirrel in the park.  He dashed around the rocks and entertained us for quite awhile with acrobatic antics.
