I know I said I'd be blogging about Watkin's Glen next, but I lied. I didn't want to blog out of sequential order, so instead you get this post.
Once upon a time it was August 27th, and I was in NY (notice the lack of "C" after "NY"). I put in a request to go to Palmyra and do a temple session while we were there, and so on that day (the 27th), off we went!
The Palmyra temple is basically beautiful. I loved the stained glass windows. After the session, Dad and I walked around the grounds and took pictures.
We discovered this little path that went around the perimeter (at least part way). I don't know where it actually led to, because after a while we stopped following it.
While we were walking around, we also saw this giant cicada sitting in the grass. It was not dead. It flew away after this picture.
It was a beautiful day and the sky was So Blue!
And, of course, no Temple Trip is complete without at least one picture of the flowers growing on the grounds.
We also went to the Sacred Grove, seeing as how it was close by, and really, are we going to travel 2,000 miles and not go to the Sacred Grove? I don't think so.
I discovered some berries in the grove (and even ate some! Sacred Berries? At any rate, they weren't exactly... ripe.) and also discovered that berries are fun to take pictures of.
On our way out of the Grove, we noticed that the leaves were beginning to change colors already. Probably right now it is beautiful back there. I mean, not that it isn't always beautiful back there, but probably right now it is beautiful in that way that only autumnal colors can be.
