Brigham Young

I've gone past the Brigham Young Monument in Southern Vermont numerous times, while riding my bike  from Rowe Camp out to Harriman Reservoir and back. It marks his birthplace, and is on the top of a really steep hill. The view is of woods and hills, followed by more hills, and it's quite a ways down to Whitingham, the nearest town. I can see why he wanted to get out and go somewhere else. (Click on photo to see a larger version.)

(Some people like to believe that the last two words in the Inscription above are a veiled reference to the 56 children he had with 16 different wives.)
