Moonrise in Winter

Our family spent time together in Utah after Christmas last year. While we were there, I took these pictures of the moon rising over the Wasatch Mountains while my husband and I were driving in our car. Don't worry, my husband was driving at the time.

If you look closely in the photo below, you can see the beautiful Provo Utah Temple lit up with a golden glow at the base of the mountains

I took this picture about five minutes later.

Utah sure is a beautiful place.

Thanks for stopping by!

Temple Square: Winter 2014 ~ Part 3

In Part 2 of my series of posts about our visit to Temple Square in December of 2014, I shared the last photo that I was able to take with our DSLR camera before it quit working due to the freezing temperatures.

Thankfully, our sturdy little regular digital camera kept on working, so I was able to take more pictures. Because of the frigid temperatures, I didn't take nearly as many photos as I would have liked to. My fingers hurt from the cold and my family and I were all too glad to head on over to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building to escape the frigid air.

Before we entered the warmth and beauty of that building, I was able to take a few more pictures.

The Joseph Smith Memorial Building is on the far left in the next two photos.

This is a beautiful nativity scene sitting on the reflecting pool near the Salt Lake Temple.

The shepherds watching over their flocks.

I love that there was snow on the ground for these pictures of the shepherds and their flocks.

My family was ahead of me as we were walking toward the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. That's it on the left in this photo.

We went up to the top (10th) floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building so we could be warm and still take in the beautiful Christmas lights on Temple Square. There are two huge observation windows on this floor. One is on the west side of the building near The Garden Restaurant and The Roof Restaurant. The other is on the east side of the building.

This is a photo from the west observation window. The stunning Salt Lake Temple is on the far right.

This beautiful stained glass ceiling is between The Garden Restaurant and The Roof Restaurant.

Here's another view of this stunning stained glass ceiling.

After taking pictures from the west observation window, we walked over to the east observation window. Here's a view from that window.

We really had a great time visiting Temple Square. After our visit to Temple Square we headed over to City Creek Center to have dinner at Kneaders Bakery and Cafe and of course I took more pictures. I shared pictures of our visit to City Creek Center in previous posts. You can view them by clicking HERE and HERE.
