Ensign Peak

Jesus blessed us with a great afternoon. We enjoyed Spring like weather...sunny with a cool breeze. And it was a great place to pray for the people living in Salt Lake City.

Ensign Peak is a great place to take pictures of the valley.

We saw a group of mountain bikers go down the face of the hill to the bottom.
