Who can resist a reference to Zelph?
Reed Russell writes, “I just got back from a trip back East in which, on the way back, I stopped at “Zelph’s Mound” (otherwise known as Naples Mound #8). Before I left, I remembered to print and clip out a seer stone.”
Reed is referring to the effort of Mormon History Association President Ron Romig (background here) to photograph the MHA “presidential seerstone,” a symbol passed from one MHA president to another, in interesting places. Keepa readers have without doubt taken this “seerstone” (or a paper copy thereof) to the most exotic places, from Alaska to Bahrain, from a Salt Lake City FLDS rally to the tops of an Idaho mountain range.
The MHA conference will be held in Independence later this month and the stone’s travels will probably no longer be tracked. If you are traveling between now and then, or even if you’re passing some interesting background in your own neighborhood, won’t you please consider snapping a picture of this stone and sending it to me or to Ron Romig to fill out his picture album? (Print out a paper copy here.)
And now, after all my propaganda, here’s Reed’s picture of the MHA presidential seerstone at Zelph’s Mound. Thanks, Reed!
