Old Mormon Fort

I really don't want to be held hostage by the heat this summer so I'm trying to find things for us to do.  Chris works across the street from the Old Mormon Fort, but we have never been.  I decided to remedy that and we took a little field trip. It was more like an hour thing rather than all day, but it was interesting.  The Mormons who came lasted less than two years before they left due to heat and discontent but they paved the way for others to settle the area and the beginnings of, well, much more than the Las Vegas strip.
My grandma used to make us line up according to age for pictures.  It makes me laugh when my kids just do it on their own
We couldn't see the temple from the fort, just wanted to remind you that there really is so much more than the strip.
