I was hoping this article was about actually attending the temples which I would
love to do. I did attend four in two months in the spring: Oakland, Oklahoma
City, Salt Lake and Provo. I would love to visit Nauvoo, San Diego and D.C.

My husband and I were sealed in the Mesa Temple in 1990 and had the grand idea
of attending every temple in the world. We did make it to 22 and then the
temple world exploded. We remember our dream fondly.
Thanks for the article. This year I started running to the temple in Bountiful
from my home in Woods Cross (10.5 miles round trip). It's quite a climb (1,000
feet) and takes a good hour and forty-five minutes get there and back, but it's
also more than just a landmark to run to. Taking nothing away from actually
passing through its doors, I viewed it as an inspirational way to begin the day.

Palmyra, Harmony, Kirtland, Far West, Nauvoo, by bike and maybe taking in some
of the pageants and visiting the temples? I know of a Brother back in our stake
in Oklahoma that has visited many of the temples by motorcycle.
This is Jody here, and I just finished posting the blog about the whole Temple
to Temple ride. The Living Creation link in the article will take you to it.
Mike is planning on doing a bicycle ride from Nauvoo to Kirtland in September,
and we will be seeing some of the church history sites along the way. We will be
following the Zion's Camp Trail when possible. It is a great experience to plan
a ride to places that have significance for you, and have other people involved
in making it happen. We do sessions in the temples whenever possible. It is a
