Gage Herbst, 26, from Alpine, Utah, took pictures of the valley called Adam-ondi-Ahman Friday August 17, 2012, near Gallatin, Missouri. Herbst was on his way to school in Akron, Ohio. The valley is historic and sacred to Latter-Day Saints. "I've heard a lot about it and wanted to see it," said Herbst. "It will be a very important place someday," he said, referring to the church's belief that this is the site where Jesus will return to earth.
