America (Part 8)

General Conference was one of the many amazing things we managed to see on our holiday. Not only did we get tickets for the two Sunday sessions, we also got very good seats for the both. We were up bright and early Sunday 3rd October, ready for Conference at 10am. It was such a beautiful day that we thought we'd take some pictures before going inside.

The Old Conference Center

And the New Conference Center

Taken in 2nd session

Monday morning my parents and my brother went back for a tour round the grounds
and inside the Conference Center. (along with other buildings)

This building is where all the Quorum Of The Twelve live. The window on the top far left
is where President Monson and his wife lives. It is also the room in which previous
Presidents of the Church lived in.

The view

I think this was taken in some sort of garden on top of a roof.

America (Part 6)

New York to Salt Lake took us just over 5 hours on the plane, but it was worth the wait. The mountains were stunning, though we couldn't see much when we landed since it was getting dark by that time. We were picked up by Michelle Young who's family we were staying with for this part of our holiday. Here are some pictures my brothers and I took of the scenery on our journey to the Young's home.

This is where we dropped off our friend Steve Nebeker. He was staying with his Aunt and Uncle.

This is the street the Young's live on. It had a very Desperate Housewives feel to it.

These were taken the next morning.

Michelle very kindly took us all, in her car, up one of the
mountains where her family have picnics sometimes.

End of Part 6. Part 7 will come in due time.
