Zion is filled with awe-inspiring geological formations, and these landmarks are usually blessed with some kind of theologically inspired name. Go figure, right? "Zion"... the name of the prophesied restored Jerusalem/Israel, has other Biblical names? How shocking! ;-p
There is the Great White Throne, the Altar of Sacrifice, and Angel's Landing, to name a few. The photo you see here is of the Court of the Patriarchs, where, from left to right, the whitish peaks are named after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
On the right, the reddish, orangish mount in front of the white peak is named Mount Moroni; Moroni being a Nephite prophet who was the one that allegedly gave the Golden Plates to Joseph Smith. What do you expect? That is Mormon country out there in southern Utah!
Anyway, here's a heads-up for various series I'll be posting on going forward:
- Debate tips and strategies
- More Holy Mackerel! comics
- Buddhism, from the perspective of my Thai friend's favorite teacher
- Continuation of the History of the Devil series.
