A very nice couple, Austin and Darlene Bonnett, work at the temple, they live very near Adam-ondi-Ahman. Brother Bonnett is the stake Patriarch there. They invited the temple president, President Hardy and his wife, to come out for a private tour. The Hardy's asked us if we would like to go with them. Of course we were more than willing! Very few people get to see behind the closed gates!
It was really a nice tour. The Bonnett's were amazing. Not only did they spent their entire morning showing us Adam-ondi-Ahman, they took us back to their home, fed us a delicious lunch, then took us to an Amish store that specializes in food storage products, spices, and some produce, it may be all the shopping that is out that way! The Bonnett's have their own food storage room in their basement that could be a Bishop's Store house!
I wish I could remember what every picture was about! We saw a temple site, Little Valley, the bottom of Spring Hill, the Grand River, a cemetery, Lyman Wight's home, homes where the missionaries live, and many other beautiful spots!

There are several orange or white stakes. They all represent
a place that was significant, either a building or something
special happened there.
