Brigham Young encapsulates his vision of why the saints were going west:

"... the Lord's house must be established in the tops of the mountains, where the people may gather, the saints receive their endowments, and the Lord hide Israel while his indignation shall pass by."

[Manuscript History of Brigham Young, quoted in The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young, Ed. Richard S. Van Wagoner, Smith-Pettit Foundation, Salt Lake City (2009), http://bit.ly/BY-discourses]
