Archaeologists Discover Golden Plates at Hill Cumorah

New plates have been found at The Hill Cumorah in the State of New York. There is 16 of them and they are most likely to be the Book of Lehi. The Book of Lehi has the Family History of The Book of Mormon people and who are now the Native American people of North America and cousins to the Mexican and Latin America, as well as in Central and South America.

The plates needs to be tested for age and translated for correct readings. However, if this is the lost Book of Lihi and more importantly that to which is related to the lost 116 pages that went missing under Martin Harris, this would be the most important find for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since the coming forth of the Book of Mormon to Joseph Smith through the church and to the peoples of North and South America. More importantly, to the Native Americans.

Below is a link to the News Article about the new find.

Cove Fort

From Wikipedia on Cove Fort.

Cove Fort is a fort and historical site located in Millard County, Utah. It was founded in 1867 by Ira Hinckley (the paternal grandfather of Gordon B. Hinckley) at the request of Brigham Young. One of its distinctive features is the use of volcanic rock in the construction of the walls, rather than the wood used in many mid-19th-century western forts. This difference in construction is the reason it is one of very few forts of this period still surviving.

The following are pictures I had taken of Cove Fort's Hinckley's House.

Horseshoe Bend and Glen Canyon Dam

The following is from Wikipedia about Horseshoe Bend.

"Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States.

Horseshoe Bend is located 5 miles (8.0 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Page.
It is accessible via hiking a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) round trip from U.S. Route 89, but an access road also reaches the geological structure, as it is part of a state park. Horseshoe Bend can be viewed from the steep cliff above.[1]

The overlook is 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet (980 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop.[2]

The rock walls of Horseshoe Bend contain a variety of minerals, among which are hematite, platinum and garnet"

The following is from Wikipedia about Glen Canyon Dam.

"Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, United States, near the town of Page. The 710-foot (220 m) high dam was built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) from 1956 to 1966 and forms Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the U.S. with a capacity of 27 million acre feet (33 km3).[2] The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a series of deep sandstone gorges now flooded by the reservoir; Lake Powell is named for John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 led the first expedition to traverse the Colorado's Grand Canyon by boat."
