Visiting church history sites

After a tiring week at the office, we slept in a bit, had a leisurely breakfast in the highest traditions, haircut, and spent some time cleaning the house.  In the afternoon, we went to some church history sites.

We stopped at the Hill Cumorah Visitor Center, watched the film, and toured the exhibits.  Of course, that was all first class. Then we drove to the hilltop and saw the statue of Moroni close up.

We then drove to the Sacred Grove for a peaceful walk and meditation time.  No, the reflection off my head is not from a pillar of light above the brightness of the sun.  It is just the normal sun.

We were getting short on time, but did join a tour group at the Smith's frame house completed in 1827 and the log house they lived in prior to that.  I believe the log house is a replica, but the frame house is restored.

This is the threshing barn near the frame house.  It was originally on the John Young farm where we are living and was moved to the Smith farm since it was of that era.
