We Made It!
We were up all night on the red-eye special. Arrived in NY City at 5:45 a.m. Had a three hour layover and then flew to Rochester. By 1:30 p.m. we had seen Joseph Smith's frame home and the old log cabin. Then the highlight, we took a long meandering walk through the Sacred Grove. There were few people in the grove so we weren't pushed or hurried. We lingered in the dusky shadows soaking up the amazing feeling of peace and love. The grove is so dense that even though the sun is bright overhead, it feels like dusk except for the illuminated canopy of leaves that forms a mystical ceiling.
I'll write more about it later. I am so tired I can barely type. But I just wanted you all to know that we arrived and it is wonderful! There are a few places on earth that approach heaven and this is one of them!
