One of the hallmarks of Heaven is supposed to be that the streets are paved with gold. Gold is a pretty but very soft metal and I really can't imagine why they would use it for pavement. Here in the desert we have lots of different kinds of gold some even looks like pavement. This is the kind of gold that comes from palo verde trees in the Spring. The bright yellow flowers fall off of the tree into yellow drifts and coat the ground under the trees. I like think I like this idea better than gold pavement.
