That part of the Mississippi reminded me
of the Hudson River in new York.
On the way to Nauvoo north from Quincy, we discussed the mob activity leading up to
the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum.We saw the home the mob returned to after they
murdered them to celebrate what they had done. Sad.
We arrived in Nauvoo late morning.
We took tours of the Heber C. Kimball home
and Wilford Woodruff home before lunch.
Wilford's home had 8 fireplaces in it!
Loved this idea. It connected two rooms between the studs.
We had the privilege of attending the
Nauvoo temple that afternoon.
It is a BEAUTIFUL temple
overlooking the Mississippi River.
We felt blessed to be there.
Love this one. :)
This monument is right outside the temple
depicting when Joseph and Hyrum took a
last look at Nauvoo on the way to Carthage.
We attended a hilarious stage presentation
about Old Nauvoo presented by the senior missionaries.
On the way to the hotel we stopped for some night
photo opportunity shots at the temple.
More Nauvoo tomorrow.
