We left Yellowstone N.P. and Wyoming and headed south to Salt Lake City in Utah. It is a clean, neat and beautiful city.
The Capitol Building
The Memorial Gardens
That evening we went on a tour of the Temple Square and the Gardens on the Plaza. It was a very hot day and I wasn't feeling the best because I had started with a bronchitis cough. Consequently I didn't take my camera on the evening tour. The gardens and buildings were magnificent and I am mad with myself for not taking the camera. There are many buildings all to do with the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints, which makes sense as this is the headquarters of Mormon Church.

The gardens were absolutely beautiful.They surround the 35 acres of the headquarters of the LDS. There are 250 garden beds with over 165,000 plants and 700 varieties from all over the world. The gardens are redesigned every six months and replanted by hundreds of volunteers.
After the garden tour, the whole group of us had dinner at the Mormon restaurant called The Lion House Pantry. It was one of the best meals that we had on the tour.
