For the first time in my life I visited Cove Fort. This is a fort that was built to give rest to tired travelers. It sits at the junction of I-15 and I-70 in central Utah.
Three of the girls and their kids, Elizabethe and me went down there and met up with Jake, Aaron and Curtis from the Church History Department. I did some photography for them while the ladies and kids took the tour. We then had a nice picnic lunch on the grounds.
This was the home for Ira Hinckley, an ancestor to my daughters and also Gordon B. Hinckley. Thus, it has historical significance to the church, and also my children and grandchildren.
It was fun learning the history about it. And, it was fun taking photos that will be used in a web site about Cove Fort!
When traveling on I-15 through Utah, it was worth the stop for the 45-60 minute visit. (Clean restrooms too!) The fort is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and free tours are given daily. (And, who would expect to find an old abandoned truck at a church-owned site?)
I rode home with Rebecca and Zoe and we made a stop by Paul O’Donnell’s. It was nice to see him. We didn’t have much time to visit, but it was nice all the same.
Rebecca dropped me off at Amber’s house and continued on to the baby shower. I spent the evening shooting pool with my two sons-in-law – Jason and Ben. It was a blast. I introduced them to Badfinger (that was the band we put in our play list on Pandora) and we shoot pool to music I grew up on.
