Temple in Star Valley, Wyoming!

I am so overjoyed with the announcement this morning of a temple to be built in one of the most beautiful places on earth: Star Valley, Wyoming! I thoroughly enjoyed growing up there and the thought had crossed my mind a couple of times that it would be neat, but I never thought it would really happen! I am so happy for all those who live there and will be able to go to the temple much more often! Yea!!!!!!

I am also excited that those from Star Valley will not have to travel the sometimes treacherous winter drive to Idaho Falls. The drive can be dangerous and fatal. One year three couples were killed in an accident on bad roads on the way to the temple. The winds get blowing and strand people on one side or the other. My parents said they have had times where they have to turn around and go back and get a motel because they can't get through. If you had small children waiting at home for you, that would not be good.
So, Hurray!!!!! A temple in Star Valley!

Googling for information on the Star Valley temple brought me here and I so appreciate your pictures of the valley! I too will look forward to this as it was a fulfillment of prophecy in my family that the Tabernacle would one day be converted.

You were the first person I thought of when it was announced! Your parents will enjoy being temple workers in their hometown!
