Come With Me

Are you tired of winter? Where you live are you still in the snow and ice? Well, come along with me on a virtual road trip to the state of Utah. Jack and I took these photos last spring in Salt Lake City. Just looking at these pictures of the Great Salt Lake after sunrise and all the beautiful spring flowers puts a smile on my face and a warm glow in my heart. We attended an organ concert at the Tabernacle. The organ had just been restored and the acoustics in the building were outstanding. The man who spoke quietly tore a piece of paper and you could hear it distinctly in the back of the room. The lighting of the "sky" changed for different musical pieces. I liked this rosy "sky". The bottom photo is the skyline of Salt Lake City with the Eagle's Gate in the foreground and the Utah State Capitol in the background. If you click on the photo of the Great Salt Lake, you will be able to see water birds hovering over the lake. This was taken from an island in the lake. The Great Salt Lake is 8 times saltier than the world's oceans.

Yes, this winter has been a tiresome one. I suspect it might have something to do with my age but it has been a lot of ice and snow and up to 12 more inches due today and tomorrow. Or so they forecast.

I went across Great Salt Lake in 1955 on a train. It slowed way down to cross the lake and that's about all I remember.
