We left Montana at 4:30 a.m. to drive back to AZ in August, and spent the first night in Salt Lake City. I’ve really only been to the airport there before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but it was really beautiful there. Our original plan was to go hiking at Cecret Lake and Lake Mary Trail, but there was a big bicycle race going on that had all of the entrances to the area where we wanted to go hiking blocked, and we would have had to drive basically all the way around the mountain to get to the other side if we wanted to go, so we ended up going to downtown SLC instead.
We went for drinks at a few bars in downtown and then went to check out the LDS Temple, which is right in the heart of the city. The grounds were gorgeous, and we went into the visitor’s center to learn more about the Mormon religion and the temple, which we didn’t even realize was a thing you could do, but it was really interesting.
We were only there for one night, we stayed at a really cute AirBnB, but I’d like to go back and spend some more time there, and hopefully visit Park City while we’re in the area.
