Salt Lake City, Utah

This is the Place Heritage Park on the approaches to Salt Lake City

In July 1847 Brigam Young stopped his carriage and overlooking the desert by the shores of the Great Salt Lake, he declared "This is the Place".


Salt Lake City is a sprawling city and it is not on the Lake. 

Arrival was in late afternoon and after a short visit to the Tabernacle and a walk up the hill to the Capitol it was time to go to check in at the hotel.

The hotel was not in the city center and consequently we saw little of Salt Lake.

The center is dominated by the Mormon Church complex (below)
