Joseph Smith had visions of the Rocky Mountains being filled with Latter-Day Saints. So this monument depicts Joseph Smith directing Brigham Young to the valley and saying "This is the place."
I love real jobs! Matt had Friday off in honor of Pioneer Day...and it was paid! So we decided to make it a "family day" and go to This Is The Place. It was pretty cool, you should at least go once. From the commercials and website however, I thought it was going to be like a fully functioning pioneer town. It wasn't. There were houses, shops, and meeting houses. Each one had a pioneer worker stationed at it and most of the time they would give you a little tour and tell you about the building and/or person it was related to. I guess I was just a little disappointed that I wasn't fully emerged into the culture. But it was still worth going to see. So I have added some pictures that we took on our trip.
It was a little village that had stuff that was just Rayelle's sizePin It
