Mel and I took a quick trip back to Utah a couple months ago and we made sure to fit in a trip to my favorite Salt Lake City attraction, the wonderfully unique and quirky Gilgal Garden.
I love the bizarre intersection between art and faith in this park, and the unique connection to Mormonism.
My favorite part of the garden is always the Joseph Smith Sphinx. I’m sure there is some symbolism in this sculpture that I have never bothered to familiarize myself with, but I just love the bizarro statue.
KP loved it, too.
Here are a few of the intriguing sights to see at Gilgal Garden:
I always love the stone grasshopper, too.
I always love this depiction of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream that I always refer to as “Dismemberment Garden”.
If you’re ever in Salt Lake City and need to kill an hour near downtown, I can’t recommend enough that you check out Gilgal Garden. Any fans of the garden out there?
