You know the story of the Mormon trek westwards ? And them stopping in the Salt lake Valley in Utah ? Brigham Young, who was sick, looked out of the covered wagon and proclaimed "this is the place". So that's where they set up their colony. I THINK they were on their way more west and therefor Oregon; when the caravan stopped, and he looked out of the wagon he said "This is the place ?????", his followers misunderstood and the rest is history
Greetings from almost Zion. HN.
Well, Luckily for my relatives they did not make it to Oregon. They sure would miss their occasional Alcholic Beverage
Of course there would be one benefit, polygamy!... I am only joking, I do not want to offend any of our Mormon members.
On a truthful note... the girl Mormons I grew up with, sure were cute
