Salt Lake City… meh?

Another set of pictures I found from an ancient trip! A few years ago I participated in the National Conference of Undergraduate Research to present my psychological research poster on spirituality among depressed patients with HIV. The conference took me to Salt Lake City, Utah, which I was super pumped about exploring until we took the 24 hour bus ride full of other students. Talk about torture!
Almost there!
Presenting my poster! Woot! Done and done, now time to explore!

Thankfully my presentation was early in the trip so I had nearly the entire time to relax or go sightseeing. I joined up with other students also presenting posters and we walked around the down town area. I have to admit that SLC is a pretty dull town, but I was only there for a few days so I guess I didn’t get time to really feel the town. We walked around the Gateway Mall but that only goes so far.

The most interesting part of the town was, of course, the Mormon heritage and monuments. Several fountains and memorials were throughout the downtown with inscriptions of Mormon sayings and pictures.

“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”
Brigham Young, founder of SLC
Salt Lake Temple
Utah State Capitol Building
Beautiful trees (cherry blossoms?) at Temple Square
Model of Jerusalem 33AD at the LDS Visitor Center (Latter Day Saints)
The Salt Lake Tabernacle Organ, one of the largest organs in the world
See the lady sitting on the left? You can get a good picture of the organ’s size.

Overall I wish I had more time in SLC – especially since it was a few years ago and I don’t remember all the details except how boring I thought it was. However, I won’t be going out of my way to make a trip back there.
