Tony Richards is on vacation away from his native English Lake District. He is visiting Wales, and after an early start saw the dawn over Lake Bala (Llyn Tegid in the Welsh language). The hill is a famous Welsh summit, Cader Idris, taken from the Dolgellau to Machynlleth road. The beach is at Caerfai, which has an Iron Age hill fort on the top of that headland. Tony's day ended in Pembrokeshire, which we recently featured in an excellent set from Peter Turner's MaccCAM.co.uk, so we look forward to some interesting comparison pictures each day.
You may catch up with Tony's forthcoming updates at this special vacation link, not the regular link in the sidebar pulldown menu. We sneaked a preview, and can report that this series is shaping up nicely.
On This Day In 2002: Western Justice - Sun 15 Sep 2002
This is the Old Courthouse in St. George, UT. When the Mormon Pioneers first arrived in Southern Utah they quickly began to build the infrastructure of an ordered society. Preceded by the Tabernacle, the Mormon Temple in St. George was completed even before the main Temple in Salt Lake City. These buildings have survived because they are maintained and cherished, not only as part of the heritage of the town, but for use as meeting places and public institutions.
