We just went on a nine day trip to New York etc. We went on the train to Nauvoo and this was the highlight of the trip. We went to the temple, Cathage jail, horse and wagon ride to see all the old pioneer homes and then took in a play that night. It was a priceless day. Next on to Chicago and the Sears towers then the next day to Palmyra New York. This was also a treasured day. We saw the two houses that Joseph Smith grew up in and the sacred grove where he saw God the father and his son Jesus Christ. It was a glorious place. We saw the hill Cumorah and I was surprised at how steep it is. Then we went to Niagra Falls. Next day on the train we encountered a group of people that SMELLED! Truly I almost died. I enjoyed the lush foliage and red leaves on the drive. We got in New York and were fortunate to not have any rain even though it was cold and cloudy. We spent two days on the bus tours and seeing all the sights. We flew home and truly there's no place like home!!!!
