On September 17th we flew to New York City where we boarded a motor coach for our tour. We went to the Sharon, Vermont area to see all the sights there and then on to the Palmyra, New York area to see the Hill Cumorah, the Sacred Grove, the Palmyra Temple and other places. We were to then go to Kirtland, Ohio but our driver didn't show up. It turned out that he got drunk and didn't show up for a couple of days but the bus company sent a new driver to take us to Niagra Falls and on to Kirtland. We were able to go into the Kirtland Temple. From Kirtland we flew to Kansas City, Missouri where we got on another motor coach for a tour of Independence, Liberty, Far West and Adam-ondi-Ahman, Missouri. After checking out those sights we travelled on to Nauvoo and Carthage, Illinois. We were able to attend the Nauvoo Temple where we were the witness couple in the session. Our final bus ride was to St. Louis, Missouri via Hannibal, Missouri to see the Mark Twain sights. We flew out of St. Louis to Salt Lake. It was a great trip and we learned a lot.
