Week 61 Aerial Photos

Here are some aerial photos that junior took while I was flying the Sonex last Saturday.  Unless you are a flyer, you can't hardly imagine how much fun it is to take a sightseeing flight over Brigham City in the evening just as the sun is going down, especially to see the temple under construction.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed flying around that evening!

Week 61

Friday was a beautiful day to take pictures of the temple.  The temple lot is always busy, with contractors working almost everywhere.  I just wish I could take a peek inside.

Stone masons working on the parking structure

Backfill is almost complete on the South side

The sky was blue!

These are the copper sheets used for the roof.
Still insulating

Sheet rock on the inside!

More stone work

The windows on the West side are in

Two Great Web Sites

There are two great websites about LDS temples on the internet.  One is called Mormon Temples and is an official web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints.  It has great articles on the purposes of temples, the history of temples, what Latter Day Saints believe about temples, etc.  Oh, and yeah, it has great photos of temples from all over the world.  Check it out!

The other web site is called LDS Church Temples.  It is not an official web site of the LDS Church, but is nonetheless, well done and very professional.  It was created by Rick Satterfield of Pocatello, Idaho.

Both websites have better layout and photos than my blog, but they don't have aerial photos! (At least not yet.) 

These links are also posted on the right banner of the blog.

Week 60 Aerial Photos

I finally am posting some more aerial photos of the temple that were taken by my dad last nigh,t as I flew.  These lend a very good perspective of how the whole temple block will come together.  For example, compare the first two photos with the site plan that was published in the Box Elder News Journal, shown in photo 3.


According to this site plan, the areas directly North and South of the temple will be landscaped.

Week 60

I hope by this time next year, the temple is completed and dedicated.  The temple block is always a hive of activity and this Friday was no different.

The second story stained glass window on the west side has been installed.  I bet it will look a whole lot more impressive from the inside.

More stone work on the parking structure.

The copper roofing on the South side it 95% complete

I  think this will be the location of the cornerstone at the dedication

The gold lettering is complete on the East side

Taking a well deserved break
The temple is now permanently wired to the electrical grid
