My stepdaughter and her family who lives in south FL bought a second home in Park City, Utah, because they all love to ski, even the kids. We try to spend a week there with them in the summer and it's almost time to go again so I better post our trip from last year.
John's daughhters are both very fit and both love the outdoors. Kerri and her husband runs all the time and hikes so naturally, that is the first thing she wants us to do too. We hiked a different trail everyday while we were there.
The view was spectacular, everywhere we looked.
But, it's not a true vacation for me without shopping so we frequented downtown too. The little grandkids attended art classes there so we would walk around the shops while waiting for them.
We ate there a lot too, the restaurants and food were really good.
Utah is so kid friendly, they had so many activities for children.
Kerri drove us around the city when we were not hiking. Below is the Olympic Park.
The following morning, we went hiking at the farm trails. See the hill with those trees behind the barn? That's where we hiked.
Even the 3 little grandkids hiked.
Our next hiking destination was the Alpine Trails and we went through the Canyons to go there. The scenery was spectacular!
We rode the gondola to get to the trails. I don't ski so these rides were very exciting for me cause they were all new to me.
We went up really, really high!
Finally got to the Alpine Trail and did our hike.
After all that activity, we got to have a picnic in the park and watched a concert at night. How do you like the brand of this beer? LOL! Only in Utah!
Kerri's husband Steve, flew from FL in the middle of the week to join us and we all got to go to the Homestead Crater.
The water was very warm and we were watching people go down to scuba dive.
The color of the water is midnight blue.
This bridge was outside the crater.
And this was on top. We were just admiring the view from up here.
Our last hiking was at Sundance Resort, which is owned by Robert Redford. This was my favorite place too. The mountains were just so picturesque.
I said, last hiking, but John and I quit before we got farther. The hiking trail was so narrow and so steep. I am terrified of heights especially if there is no fence or barrier to hold on to, and there wasn't. All I could see was being so up high and the top of the tall pines and trees below. I was holding on so tight to John's back because we had to go single file since the trail was very narrow. I got so nervous but even more nervous seeing the little kids in front of us go on their own that I started having cold sweats and breathing really hard. When we got to a part where the trail curved and we could not see where we were headed to, John decided for me and him to go back. He finally decided to end my misery, lol.
Every now and then, John would tease me and pretend like he was falling. I hate that! LOL!
We took the chairlift to go back to the main part of the resort. That was the best part, seeing the beautiful view from way up. I was nervous but not too much because I could hold on to the rail. We were soooo high!
The resort is really pretty. John and I had so much fun walking leisurely around, while waiting for the youngsters to get back from their hike.
We were pretending to be stars and having a shooting there, lol.
Last but not least, we went to Salt Lake City and toured the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and watched the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse in their huge conference center.
I captured the blue hour.
