Oquirrh Temple

Photo taken on February 13,2001 of the Oquirrh Temple

The name Oquirrh (pronounced O-Ker) was taken from the Goshute Indian word meaning "wooded mountain. In addition, the name "Oquirrh" is also a Ute Indian word translated as "The Shining Mountains" or "Glowing". Possibly due in part to the ranges appearance when struck by first light in the winter
