We only had time for a 15 minute tour and luckily we met Mary Ellen, the tour guide. In that short amount of time, she explained the historical restoration that was recently completed, escorted us to the House Chambers and the Senate Chambers, and cheerfully invited us back for an hour-long tour that, I'm sure would be well worth the...

The Capitol Building sits on a hill overlooking Salt LakeCity. Beautiful views of the city. It was a Saturday, so it was closed to the public.

What a gorgeous building that was open to the public and easily accessible. Check out the architecture and art and the cavernous acoustics!

This was a cute little town to pass through. It didn't seem like there was much to do though. There are quite a few churches and older building to look at and take pictures of.

If you are in town touring the Capitol is worth the trip. High on the hill it is pretty stunning. During legislative session parking is impossible.

This is certainly one of the more interesting state capitols in the land. It sits at the top of State Street on the edge of a fairly significant hill surrounded by massive areas of lawn, making it quite visible especially because it it so well-lit 24/7. Many locals jog or walk around the perimeter and of course this is utilize... More
