road trip day 7

Beautiful, thick spirit in Palmyra, NY as we walked where Joseph had walked. We attended church at 9 and then put on some comfortable shoes before heading out to the sites. The Grandin Press, where the first Book of Mormon was published

Next we went to the log and frame home and learned about the sacred experiences of the Smith family. The Sacred Grove was as incredible as I remembered and as amazing as you might imagine. Silent, with only the sound of little critters running around under all of the ground cover. Understated and beautiful. Last we went to the Hill Cumorah and felt the spirit again as we prepared to head out to Niagara Falls and then Kirtland, OH.

This is my favorite part....the beginning! Close to my old stomping ground.....when I say close I mean three hours away close! Have fun at Niagara Falls. It is prettier from the Canadian side.....just sayin!

I went back there several years ago and I loved this. Enjoy!

I'm envious of you and excited for you at the same time! Is it OK to have both emotions? Beautiful pictures. I don't see any pictures of the 4 of you so I can't say you're still smiling!
I can only assume that you are! Who wouldn't be happy on a trip like this!

I have never been there, but always wanted to...

Glad you're getting to see all this rich history first-hand!

That shot up through the trees with the sunlight - absolutely beautiful.
