Despite our hotel being about 10 miles away from the L.A. Temple, it still took us about 2 hours to get there. Oy. Good thing it was worth it to see this beautiful building, and this time we got to go inside. It's very interesting to go to a temple outside of Utah, where they are just thrilled to actually have people there willing to help. It's great to feel needed! And man, I wish the temples in Utah had palm tress and beautiful pools of turquoise water by the front door.
