Adam and Eve Lived Here

Our GPS routed us in the back way so we didn't see the area with the rest rooms until we were heading back to the highway. There is a marker at this spot and a couple of valley overlooks. We love the musical "Book of Mormon," so this seemed an appropriate detour to make.

Adam-ondi-Ahman is where Adam and Eve moved after being kicked out of the Garden of Eden (according to Mormon's prophet Joseph Smith). Still mostly an in-your-mind destination.
