Oo, ominous- it looked like those clouds were ready to break forth and water the earth. But we lucked out, it passed right over us.
The stone had chisel marks all over. It gives it great character, doesn't it? Like I know what I'm talking about...
That's where we sat. Not bad. Except when the action was RIGHT in line with those dang lights. The darker green grass in front of the chairs is where the pageant took place- it's a big hill, though doesn't look like it from this angle. It has to be big, there's hundreds of performers to accomodate.
We waited a long long time for the pageant. But it was worth it. It told the story of Joseph Smith, a bit of the Book of Mormon, and the early Mormon Pioneers. Even if it was a little cheesy at times, I usually felt warm and fuzzy inside.
But it was cold. So weird- when the sun was out, it was pretty hot, enough to make me want to stand in the shade. When the sun went down, it was the perfect temperature for about 5 minutes. Then it plummeted. I was very unprepared except for this little blanket. So I bundled.
