Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Provo Tabernacle Burns

I know this is normally about geocaching, but was sad to me. 

In the mid to late 90's I lived in downtown Provo.  Single and passing the time I would take many walks throught the downtown district.   One of the features is the Provo Tabernacle.  It is the gathering place that is used every week by the local LDS church when they wish to have a conference or a gathering for a number of local wards (parishes).

It is also used for many community concert and choir events and being in the center of the city many county activities surround the building.

Over the years I have taken a number of pictures of the building.  Black and Whites (that I need to find now).  Now that has came to an end.  Finished in 1890 after 15 years it was some of the nicest woodwork, architecture,  and stained glass fin the state from that era.  

I feel like I lost an old friend. It will be missed.

Here is a link to more pictures from before the fire, from the historical website.  A warning they are large and it takes a while to load the page.
