Wyoming is home to two U.S. National Parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Since both are relatively close to one another and not too far from my home in Salt Lake City, I recently took a weekend and visited both of these serene destinations.
I look forward to the changing of the seasons. And this time of year the leaves in the mountains of Utah glow in brilliant colors. I love fall. Not only is it beautiful, the weather is generally pleasant and perfect for exploring and other outdoor activities.
I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with family in Lake Tahoe. Since I was a little kid my family has been vacationing here. But it has been a while since my last visit so it was nice to be back. Here’s some photos from the trip!
Perhaps one of the country’s greatest cities, San Francisco reveals the American way of life in a unique and beautiful way. For over two hundred years, with its rich history, this city has and still is sought by many people from many different cultural backgrounds who come here for new opportunities.
People who aren’t from or haven’t lived in Utah often wonder why people who have love it so much. They know it has mountains and snow and some national parks. But what people don’t realize is how accessible the cities are to the outdoors and rural nature. While certainly not the biggest city in the country, the Salt Lake City metro area boasts a lot of big city amenities. But what makes it unique is the ability to put city life on the back burner like an on/off switch.
If you are just joining in, this is part of a series of blog entries about a trip I took in March. Taking this trip was a challenge I gave to myself to cover as many miles and visit as many places I could in a two week time frame while still being able to see beautiful places and landmarks. So far I have covered my visits to New Zealand, Sydney, Australia, and Bali, Indonesia.
