Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve

Vance and Tanner went to the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve with the Cub Scouts in May and Vance has really wanting us to take them back so we decided to take a little time yesterday to do that.  It was nice to walk around and enjoy how quiet it was and be in nature on the Sabbath day.  It was pretty neat.  Poor Stephen's allergies were acting up pretty bad, but I think he enjoyed it despite that. 
We talked about how in the scriptures when prophets wanted to talk to God they would find a quiet place usually in nature to do so.  We also talked about how Joseph Smith went to a grove to pray when the First Vision occurred. 
Here are some pictures I took while we were walking around.
