Treasure Hunt

One Saturday in February, my brother Jon and his family, my sister Jayna and her family and our family all met in Salt Lake City for a grand adventure. Jon was put in charge of finding something fun for our families to do together and boy howdy, did he deliver!! We gathered together early in the day at the Pacific Union Station. Jon was holding a mysterious box and told us that he had gotten it at the Weber State library where he works. He told us that it contained information about a man named Solomon Moore. As we read the papers from inside the box, we realized that it looked like a treasure hunt and that we needed to find clues inside the station. Here is a picture of all of our clues.

Once we found some clues, we would be led to another location to find more clues. Our family had never been to the Pacific Union Station so just being there was fun. It has beautiful murals inside and it was fun to think about all of the people who had once sat in that building waiting for a train to depart or arrive.

The clues suggested that we look for the next clue at The Brigham Young Monument. We hopped onto the Salt Lake City Trax and rode up to the monument.

After finding the next clue that we needed we realized we also needed a bathroom break so we headed into the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

The next clues sent us to The Lion House Pantry but before we went looking for the clues we went on a tour of The Beehive House.

We enjoyed a little refreshment at the Lion House Pantry.

It was a little rainy but that just made our adventure even more memorial. We LOVED being with our fun cousins!!

We went to The Social Hall Museum for our next clue. I guess because the museum was inside we didn't take any pictures. Bummer, because this was a very interesting place!

Our last stop was The Cathedral of the Madeleine and it was absolutely beautiful. We didn't get to spend a lot of time inside as there was a wedding going on while we were there.
