This is one of Tour Director Kay Godfrey's most beloved itineraries. He is excited to again bring you this magical tour! In the fall the mountains in the eastern US burn with color so rich and beautiful you must see it in person at least once in your life. Combine that thrill with the spiritual side of an LDS church history tour as you learn about the Prophet Joseph’s early life in Sharon and Palmyra. See the sites that shaped a young man of faith into the prophet of the restored gospel we know today.

Join us on a picturesque tour including Maine, Vermont, and upstate New York. We will open this history to you in such a way that your love and testimony of the prophet will never be the same.
