Completed and dedicated in 2006, the Sacramento Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints overlooks Lake Natoma on the eastern edge of the city of Rancho Cordova, California, twenty miles east of Sacramento. The 19,500 square foot building is finished in light gray granite from Fuzhou, China and is built in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Surrounded by oak trees, the Temple is built on a 47 acres parcel that is also home to one of the Church’s meetinghouses and has provisions for sand volleyball, picnics, camping, and other activities. The Sacramento Temple is the seventh Temple built by the Church in California. The spire of the Temple is 131 feet high and is capped by a gilded statue of the Angel Moroni and prophet from the Book of Mormon, the Church’s scriptures. In the LDS Church Temples are not ordinary meeting houses, but places for sacred ordinances.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
