Seagulls to the rescue!

Another photo taken with my now-deceased camera...


When squealnakedcatj and I visited Salt Lake City in May 2001, we enjoyed touring around and seeing the different sights. One monument that caught our eye was this one dedicated to seagulls! Apparently, the Mormon settlers did not have a very plentiful first harvest when they got out west, and it was threatened by a swarm of locusts. Just when they thought they were doomed, a tremendous flock of seagulls flew in and ate all the bugs! The harvest was saved, the settlers deemed it as a miracle, and the eternal gratitude of Mormons to these fine avians was assured.

Avian glory

Haha, forgot about this. That was odd, wasn't it. We enjoyed a great meal in the salty city though, if you recall. Yum!
