Meet me in Gilgal

So, after dinner on our Anniversary, Ryan and I were heading down to City Creek to do a little shopping. As we were driving he remembered this strange little park that he had gone to years ago. So we set off to find it. Turns out it is right by Trolley Square. It is the strangest, yet quietest little garden ever. It is wedged in between two houses, so it's not terribly big, and it is filled with the strangest rock creations, sculptures, etc. Want a really fun, yet very strange experience? 

Meet me in Gilgal:

This sculpture had various D&C sections carved in the rocks. 
Mr. Brick Pants was Ryan's favorite.



The above represents King Nebuchadnezzar's Dream in Daniel 2 from the Bible. Body parts everywhere :)


Joseph Smith's face on a Sphynx? Huh?

There are tombstone like flagstones everywhere with scriptures, poems, lyrics, etc. engraved in them. 

Ryan and I were full of giggles as we wandered the paths. 

However, despite the curious nature of this place, it really is a great Urban City Park. There were others there, but it was so quiet and peaceful. A retreat from crazy downtown. I can't wait to take the kids to see it!
