St. George - 1

Brigham Young Statue (St. George) - Utah  2012

Mike stayed overnight in St. George at a quite nice Best Western motel (Coral Hills, I think.)

Good location! As it turns out, Brigham Young had a winter house in the neighborhood . . . this area of Utah is known as "Dixie," because the winter climate is relatively mild.

A little-known fact (little-known to Mike, anyway) is that according to the New York Times, Brigham Young "married an estimated 55 women."

Nowadays though, he - that is to say, his statue - sits peacefully and contemplates the traffic on East St. George Blvd.
