Salt Lake City Tourists – 6/8/13

Salt Lake Temple

Salt Lake Temple

We’ve been in Salt Lake for the past 2 nights and the weather has really heated up – in the 90’s.  Staying at a KOA close to the center of town with easy access to all of the sites.  We visited Temple Square, which is a 10-acre complex with many historic buildings including the iconic Salt Lake Temple, all related to Mormon history and genealogy.  We were there on a Friday and saw 20+ wedding parties taking photos.  I’m not sure if this is a normal occurrence or if Friday has some significance, but it was kind of cool.

We also went to the Saturday public market, the Great Salt Lake to dip our toes, historic Saltaire (a very cool story – click on the link to learn about this place) and the Olympic Park at Park City.  Oh and we ate at one of Man v. Food’s featured venues, Crown Burgers, for their famous cheeseburger topped with pastrami.  It did not disappoint!

Neither of us have ever been here before and I must say it is a very pretty city, surrounded by gorgeous green, snow-capped mountains. We head south tomorrow to start our National Park extravaganza. First up: Zion.  Expect lots of photos over the next 2 weeks (that is if we can get a good wi-fi connection).

5 random observations from me:
1. Road construction is EVERYWHERE
2. RV Parks seem to all be located near railroad tracks
3. Driving make me sleepy no matter what time of day (sorry Mike)
4. My sleep number is 25; Mikes is 35
5. I am becoming more flexible everyday, but still have a ways to go…
