Palmyra Trip

Fall in the East. Could it get any better? Or more beautiful? Twenty-two people from our ward took a trip to Palmyra this fall and Reid and I got to go.Here we are at the Whitmer Farm in front of one of the many beautiful trees. One of the many places that we got to see was Alvin's gravesite. There was this great tree that looked a lot like the tree on Temple Square that we had a picture taken at when we got married --so we tried it again.
One day, we all got to go to the Palmyra temple. It is beautiful and all of the windows are stained glass and look like the sacred grove. It was great.
The temple also overlooks the Sacred Grove.
The Joseph Smith farm house is, of course, right next to the Sacred Grove.

Here we are on the staircase at the Palmyra Inn. We got to see so much in the week that we were there that we were all a little was a great trip.
We also got to go to Kirtland and see all the sites there. Our group had two cute sister missionaries that took us all over.
We also went to the Grandin Building to see where the Book of Mormon was first printed.The Whitmer Farm was the location of the organization of the church.
Niagara Falls was a beautiful place. We rode on the Maid of the Mist and got really close to the Falls. It was sooooo windy.
