Mormon Temple – Westwood

In Temples of LA on August 25, 2010 at 12:54 am

Stella laughed when I google-mapped this place.  It looms over Westwood and existed as a constant bafflement in her childhood.  Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with probable zombies.

Briar said one word as we got out of the car.  “Scared.”

There is garden full of tiny statues of women (or statues of tiny women).  Briar again: “Scared!”

The friendly greeters knew just why we were there. The Visitors Center has been closed for 3 1/2 years for refurbishing.  It just reopened last week.

The grounds are filled with well-tended gardens, lots of flowers and the people couldn’t be nicer.  So I’m not really sure what Briar was picking up on that got her so scared.

But I’m damn proud of her!
