July Reflections

Connecting to Weekend Reflections

Reflections from downtown Provo.

 Reflection of town square across the street.

Frolic and play.

We have hit 100 degrees a couple of times but not near as many days as last year. I am determined that I will not complain about the heat because we had such a cool almost cold spring. Tomatoes are not doing well this year either.

July Celebrations

In Utah we celebrate twice in July; July 4th for the birth of our country and July 24th when the pioneers came to Utah in wagon trains, on horseback and on foot. I used to think that they all rode in the wagons but most really walked the plains and only rode if they were a driver or if they were sick.

Historic Tabernacle

The historic Provo Tabernacle caught fire from a faulty light switch. All that remained standing were the original brick walls. 

Originally, it was built in 1886 and then dedicated in 1889, it went through several renovations to update the heating and electrical. I even remember going to a Christmas musical one year with my daughter when she was at the University - the music was all in German.

The fire gutted the building in December 2010 along with a $150,000 piano and art work.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints wanted to save portions of this historic building and decided to turn it into an LDS temple. They put it walls on stilts while building a new foundation.

Work has been in progress for some time. What puzzles me is that in 2014 the Angel Moroni golden statue has been placed on this building before it is finished.

I caught a nice reflection of it in the window of the historic building across the street.

Old Fence

Old but still standing. Happy 4th of July! If you look close there is a bit of red, white and blue on both sides of the star. This fence surrounds that little house in Heber that was turned into a wine and dine place.
