Photography rule #1. Don’t take pictures of people in front of windows. I just really wanted a picture of John in front of the mountains. Tried as we might, we couldn’t figure out the flash on the camera. Photography rule #2: Don’t use flash.
Our second night in SLC we went to a Utah Jazz game. We climbed up to our nosebleed seats and watch the Jazz beat the pants off the Lakers. For the first half anyway. Then the Jazz decided they had enough and stopped scoring. Not the best strategy.
I forgot to whip out my camera during the actual game, so no shots of the court. My apologies.
This was neat to see where they filmed the halftime report.
The next day we said good-bye to SLC and hopped in the car for an 11-hour jaunt to LA. Driving through Utah was quite amazing. I know the state is 60% LDS, but I was still amazed at the sheer number of churches and temples we drove past. At one point on the highway, you could see 3 temples. We even drove past two LDS churches that shared the same parking lot! It made me curious if each church serves a relatively small number of parishioners.
The drive was gorgeous. Everyone asked us if it was terrible, but really it flew by. We drove through Vegas, but didn’t stop long enough to partake in our own sinning in the city. Next time.
