Skywatch Friday

Like Salt Lake City, the Northwest is full of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as Mormons). In fact, Boise, Idaho, actually has more Mormons per capita than Salt Lake City. Washington and Oregon are no exception to this; buildings such as this - complete with easily recognizable Mormon steeples - are the norm around here. This one is in Milton-Freewater, and is nearly surrounded by orchards.

Interesting photo. I am amazed that the LDS church can build so many churches in an area AND have them filled to capacity. In one area of boise, there is one church in every one square mile!
