    Utah for the win! Born again in the Millcreek Township (for those that don't know where that is it's right below Holladay)! Anyone around my part of the valley?

    Hello Utah peoples! I live in Payson, Utah County. Born at St. Marks Hospital. Christened at St. Marks Episcopal Cathedral Church ( Not far from the Capitol , City cemetery , East of Temple Square ) . Have ancestors who were Handcart Pioneers.

    Dad was an occasional ( about 4 times a year ) Episcopalian & a Free Mason ( ugh! ) - [ huge part of why he hated Mormons was because the Mormons stole their Temple ceremony from the 'Masonic Lodge' ]. Mom was a 'Jack-Mormon', who would defend the L.D.S. group - and yet never ever attended any Ward, or even owned any L.D.S. books . { Really a bad marriage mix for the children... :sigh: Dad hated Mormons ( He went to Granite H.S. ) , and he hated Utah - because they allowed Mormons to live here ...

    We had ethics , and kinda some morals ... but sadly no real "anchor" spiritually to keep the ship from hitting the rocks. }. We left in 1965 ( Dad got a U.S. Govt. job transfer - and he was thrilled. ) I came back here to Ute-land in Sep. 2012. Got saved by The Lord Jesus 33+ years ago in Smogifornia. I am of the 'Baptist' flavor. Several Cousins are L.D.S. & my Sis..

    Hello - and yes it is. Utah has more National Parks / Nat. Monuments than any other U.S. State. Many/most are in the Southern section of the State. If you ever come down here for a visit ( Car or Pick-up or R.V. ) stop and see Mt Timpanogas Cave. In the Wasatch Mountains east of the town called 'American Fork'. Use I-15. Neat place. There is a substantial hike up a paved path. You need to be able to walk and able to breathe air thousands of feet up in elevation.

    { [ As a Christian --- it often makes me laugh at my home State when I start reading a State map. The L.D.S. Mormons who came here in 1847 ... believed that They were "The Chosen" and "The Faithful Band". The Mormons think that this is the new "Zion". :D { The Bible says that Zion is over where Jerusalem is... but hey --- The Mormon leaders have always thought they knew more than the Inspired Bible. We have ( near where I live ) a Mt. Nebo , and the river that drains the Utah Lake into the Great Salt Lake is called "The Jordan River". 'Moab' , "Jericho Jct". , 'Mount Carmel' , They also have cities and areas named for Book of Mormon 'places' and characters. 'Nephi' , 'Lehi' , 'Kolob' Canyons . ]}

    ... As I heard a Jewish man who has lived in Utah since his birth say with a big grin : 'Utah is the only place on the planet where I am considered a 'Gentile' ". ;)
