Palmyra Youth Trip: Cooling Off In Seneca Lake

Monday, July 23, 2012

We took the youth up to Palmyra, New York to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant, the Sacred Grove, Palmyra Temple, and the Peter Whitmer Farm. I've been looking forward to this trip for quite some time and let me just say it was truly a wonderful trip. I'm going to be posting about our trip over the next few days.

I missed the first day of the trip, which consisted mostly of driving, settling in to the cabins at Seneca Lake Camp, a rousing game of ultimate frisbee, and a devotional. I hear the devotional was very good, so I'm a little upset I missed it. I showed up late that evening (I had to work).

The next day we got up and had a little breakfast and then headed straight down to the lake. We had a great time cooling off (it was in the high 90's for most our a trip) and boating. We really have the best youth! They're just so much fun.


  1. Your photography is awesome! What kind of classes are you taking?

    1. Thanks! I'm currently taking a New York Institute of Photography course, but I wouldn't recommend it. It's not worth the cost. I feel like I'm learning more just following photography blogs. You can find a lot of information just online. I am going to take a course at the community college this Fall, which I'm really looking forward to.

  2. Hi - Visiting from Simple Things link-up. Not to butt into your conversation, but...I signed up for a photography class at the University that I work at and found that I too found more information through blogs than the class. Wasn't worth the $$.

    And, these pictures look so refreshing. I want to be in that water, now!
