We spent the next few hours touring the headquarters of the Latter Day Saints, and I was amazed by the temple architecture and the pipe organs where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs. The temperature hovered around freezing all day, and as we traveled throughout Temple Square, Chris and I snuggled to keep warm. We stopped periodically to snap a few selfies, and luckily, we found a group of teenager tourists who showed up how to take "jumping" photos.
The next thing we new, we were back on the road headed north towards Antelope Island. A volunteer at the local visitor center told us about the huge buffalo herds and free-roaming antelope, and the Great Salt Lake did not dissapoint. The afternoon sun warmed our faces, and we loved learning about the pioneers who traveled west under treacherous circumstances. The looming mountains in the distance provided a pictureque backdrop to the salt-crusted lakes, and I learned a lot about prehistoric oceans and fossils.
