Text of Legend by Scot Facer Proctor

Meridian reader John Marsh sent us this wonderful aerial photograph of Nauvoo taken recently by Dennis Davis. We thought you would like to get an ‘angel’s view of Nauvoo’ with a brief orientation through the legend below. So many of you have been to Nauvoo or have an intense interest in it, here is a fun angle you may not have been able to take with your point-and-shoot.

You might want to sit down with your children and see if you can find all sixteen items identified on the legend. If you would like to see an even larger version click here to see a high res version (650 k) of the photo below.
