Where in the World is Gary? #380

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#379) is St John, New Brunswick, Canada 

Where in the World is Gary?  #380

Latitude — 40° 45′ North

Longitude — 111° 53′ West

This place was founded by Brigham Young in 1847. An impressive temple and the large square which surrounds it is the major tourist attraction here.

The angel, Moroni, sits atop the temple. A domed building near the temple houses a world-famous choir. This is probably the only place in the world with a monument to sea gulls.
