Provo Tabernacle Fire

I've spent many Sundays in this beautiful old building, playing hangman and the dots game. There was even the time that Jeff and I had the time wrong for Stake Conference and showed up almost an hour early - we still would have been late for the time we thought it started - and got to sit on the third row. (Only the third row because there are apparently people who show up a full hour early to get that first row.) Best seats we'd ever had.

I'm really sad to see this building burned. There was a hallway in the back that had gorgeous old photographs from over the years of the Tabernacle that I loved to look at. The historical significance of the building alone makes this a real tragedy.

(Also, I'm glad Jeff and Uncle Erik were able to put their Noni/Nu Skin differences aside long enough for us to go out on the roof.)





























Really sorry to see this one go.

Differences with Noni/NuSkin? I think you mean similarities! That's the real issue.

These are the first that I have seen of the destruction - it is really sad. I really did love that building. Great images though, you really captured the emotion.
