Yesterday I went with some of the branch members to Manti to watch the Mormon Miracle Pageant. First, we went up to Maple Canyon (near Fountain Green, UT) to have a dutch oven dinner. We went hiking a little bit and hung around til it was time to go watch the pageant. There were sooooo many people there to watch the pageant, it was crazy! And of course there were the ever present protestors outside the gates. They like to show up everywhere and try to ruin the spirit of things. The pageant was ok, it was kind of funny to watch the actor's hand gestures because they didn't match the recording of what they were supposed to be saying. I thought the actors would be speaking the dialogue, but it was just a recording blasted from the speakers. In one scene, they actually had a guy dressed up like the Angel Moroni standing on top of the temple! Talk about scary! He sure was up pretty high! The pageant lasted two hours, and boy were those seats hard! I had a hard time paying attention because I was so uncomfortable! Plus, we didn't get home until about 2 a.m. since Manti is two hours away! I was pretty tired by the time we got home, but it was a lot of fun and I'm glad I went.
