SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Mormon leaders in Salt Lake City are trying to figure out what to do with a flagpole that was cemented onto a mountaintop by missionaries.
Hikers discovered the American flag this week on Mount Olympus, a 9,000-foot peak on the east side of the Salt Lake valley. It was flying above a T-shirt bearing the name of the mission and the signatures of several missionaries.
Spokeswoman Jessica Moody of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said leaders of the Salt Lake City East Mission were looking into the matter and planned to "address it appropriately."
The summit is a designated wilderness area where it's illegal to make any permanent installations, according to the Forest Service.
