Rain and Storm Fall colors at city creek 🍁 This is from last night Sunset at the University of Utah Inside Salt Lake City's Capitol building. Absolutely beautiful in there. Marble for as far as the eye can see! Plus, this was my second time there, and for the second time I damn near had the place to myself. If you enjoy hearing an echo and exploring some amazing architecture, check it out. :) Lights at Temple Square 2016 #bestof5 View of the temple with sunset. When you're there, take a tour with one of the sisters. Downtown #SLC has some #stunningstructures including the #Utah capitol building. #frattography It's Mary. You know, the mother of Jesus? What? You don't see her? It's ok, I didn't either. This is a tree that at one point in time, featured a sighting of Mary in this here stump. It's in a public park to boot. So it's free. And the Catholics have been nice enough to build a staircase so you can get closer to the charred remains. Oh, that's right, the sighting of Mary was vandalized and burned a few years back, so you can't tell at all what's going on with it now. So like how the Grinch tried to steal Christmas by stealing all the gifts and decorations but he just couldn't take away the people of Whoville's Christmas spirit; the same happened here. People still flock to see the what they believe was a picture of Mother Mary in a stump. It's worth a quick stop if you're nearby. Plus, Moochie's Subs is right around the corner. So, that's always a huge plus in my book. :) Sometimes early mornings on campus are worth it for the views alone. Here a late summer supermoon sets of the Oquirrh Mountains. I love to see the Temple.
Holiness to the Lord, The House of the Lord. Tulip Festival in Salt Lake City. Night shot Amazing architecture! The journey is so peaceful How beautiful #FallFoliage from Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City Hipster, farm to table, craft cocktail, downtown, pretty darn tasty.

However, no one likes to hang out at this one apparently. Also, on the street to the slight north east, there is an optical illusion street where if you put your car in neutral, it'll appear to get pulled up a hill. Pretty fun actually. :) (It's on Bonneville Blvd) Stunning architecture here in SLC. I'm not a Mormon, but I certainly couldn't visit SLC without checking this place out. It certainly is a must-see. :) Holy crap. This place completely blew my mind. Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives, this place deserves that accomplishment. In the week I was there, I went twice. Get the cheesesteak! Beautiful Sunset last night The temple I completely lost my mind when I found this place! I mean, come on! Harry & Lloyd's apartment complex from Dumb & Dumber!!! I got the address from the Dumb & Dumber wiki page. I compared it with a screen shot from the movie, and yup! This is the place! So yeah, if you're in Salt Lake City, go here!!! The inside of this library is amazing!! The Aviary in Liberty Park Salt Lake City is a gorgeous attraction filled with rare and beautiful birds and exhibits. Don't miss their up close bird feedings and encounters, or the epic bird shows! I worked here for one summer and often spent my free time wandering around with my camera never far from my eye.

Real Salt Lake game last night Temple square If you're going to be at the square, check out the reflection pool. It's pretty awesome. :) In a sunny day An English sphinx? This interesting little spot includes an odd assembly of sculptures honoring Mormon heritage. With minimal information provided (outside of scripture quotes stamped into stone) this lovely little garden tucked into SLC's downtown leaves visitors slightly perplexed - unless perhaps you are in the know about LDS history. An island in the middle of the city. Temple Square in the spring is always beautiful. I love the flowers! There are free tours here year round or you can just go wander. #hiking.. i love hiking being out doors following a trail or just making my own fresh air and the out doors is amazing. i hike every chance i can close to home or travel to find new locations, I'm from akron Ohio but i love to travel this photo was from...all around salt lake are amazing hikes if you look for them It was a great for a lunch ride.

#supermoon The Salt Lake City Convention Center has a very interesting sign garden. It give you many things to think about. Bicycle repair station - every city and town should provide these! This stand includes a raised bike rack, air for tires, and several tools attached to cords that allow you to make most reasonable repairs. Great going, Salt Lake City!

Another great example of hoarfrost where invisible water vapor in the gas stage skips a stage (condensing to liquid water) and 'deposits' directly to solid ice crystals! The reflecting pool on the State Street side of the Salt Lake Temple provides incredible views of this architectural marvel at sunset. #Reflections Nope, not a Church of Satan... What's with the pentagram you say? Check this out... http://wearejuxt.com/blog/?p=5834 Temple Square Very interesting museum. Lots of information.

Beautiful Day with my family at the Utah State Capital A storm is brewing. The park next to the temple. The main temple, back door. I find Coyote Beautiful Sunset Wish you were here... The Salt Lake Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) located on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. At 253,015 square feet (23,505.9 m2), it is the largest LDS temple by floor area. Dedicated in 1893, it is the sixth temple completed by the church, requiring 40 years to complete, and the fourth temple built since the Mormon exodus from Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1846.
#TroveOnTuesday Supermoon! The moon will not be this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034. Take a moment to admire it tonight. Great view from a hiking trail above the campus. I love Salt Lake!

Garden is Salt Lake City and it was very interesting. Sun on the mountain I'm not much of a mall person, but beyond general consumerism, the City Creek mall in downtown SLC is quite beautiful and offers some spectacular city views. Especially during the holiday season. The lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake City are some of the biggest and most elaborate displays I've seen for the holidays. A picture from my recent visit to Salt Lake City. Beautiful blue sky as a back drop. I'm not temple worthy! Lol. Not a member but it is a pretty building. Tiger enclosure My kind of place. #bassetsrule Beautiful Sunset Coolest Arts Festival in Salt Lake City during the summer. Where The Wild Thing Are hits 50!! This was one of my favorite books as a kid, and I love the tracks leading down to the children's section. Beautiful Day on Friday So Beautiful Salt Lake Temple Temple Square is an icon feature of #downtown #SaltLakeCity, Utah. Religious or not, the area is a beautiful place to explore in the Capitol #city. #Utah #urban Arches and chandeliers at the Capitol Theater Salt Lake City Utah Temple Square #saltlakecity Moon
