I determined the drive from Camp N Town in Carson City NV to Park City RV Resort in Park City UT was almost 600 miles and would take over 8 hours, so I decided to break up the trip with a stop in Winnemucca NV. In addition to splitting the trip, the stop gave me an opportunity to visit the Buckaroo Hall of Fame & Heritage MuseumAND would allow me to traverse Salt Lake City UT between rush hours instead of during or after the evening rush. A check on Google Earth showed there was plenty of parking near the downtown Winnemucca facility so I headed there with the Bighorn in tow; however, the doors were secured with posted instructions for the attendees of some development seminar hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. Apparently, the Chamber ... read more

Make sure you are scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page on the blog to see all of the pictures. I post at least 20 pictures the day. Today we started out slowly. We had breakfast and then went down to Park city main street to have a look around. Cute little town. You can tell that it's a high-end area due to the stores. Has to be amazingly bustling in the wintertime. I'd love to see it. It is beautiful in the summertime, too. Lots of restaurants and little shops. It took us a while to find Park city village where the kids activities are. Apparently we drove right past it at one point. How we missed it I have no idea. At one point, we ended up at another ski ... read more

At the moment in Utah, the Sundance festival is taking place – an annual film festival that takes place in Park City, Utah, celebrating cinema from around the world. It is a showcase for new work from American and International independent filmmakers. There are awards for some sections (American drama, International drama, documentaries, feature films and short films). It began in 1978 and originally featured only American-made films, with a focus on independent films, and regional films. I spent the afternoon listening to the live stream of a panel called 'Post-Truth and Consequences part 2'. A group of journalists discussing questioning society and challenging political orthodxies, discussing what 'post-truth' is, fake news, hate speech, trolling, and open hostility to free press and free speech. I will also be listening to 'Cinema Cafe' live stream which is ... read more

Greetings All Here are some photos from my recent 8 day trip to Utah. I had a couple of days at an incredible ski resort called Park City whilst I waited for my good friend Mark Robson to arrive. I can honestly say it was some of the best skiing I have ever done. Plus it was a cracking night out as well.... read more

There are a bunch of shops, bars, restaurants, and museums. We had a great time!... read more

headed up to see Park City before leaving Utah. The leaves were turning yellow, rust, and red, as Autumn approaches. It snowed while we were there. The white of the snow made a great contrast with the Autumn colors.... read more

August 20, 2013 - Tuesday Another beautiful morning in Utah. In the 50’s when we got up. Got ready and left for Park City for the day. A fun time with all the sights and then a little bit of time at the Tanger Outlet Mall. After a fun morning we headed to Ruby Tuesday’s for lunch. Well, we rolled on out of there after stuffing ourselves! Back to the park and a little coffee and latte and then a nice walk around the park. A relaxing day for us today, much needed. August 21, 2013 - Wednesday Up and head into Heber City to the Rail Road Station. Board the Union Pacific 1910 passenger car, kept in the mode of 1910, no heat, no a/c, wooden windows that open and h ave to be propped ... read more

June 26, 2013 When Looking a Pictures don't forget to select all pages - there are 52 pictures Last day at Salt Lake City: Today we headed out for the Olympic Park, built for the 2002 Olympics. What fun and interesting things to see. They have training there year round and when there’s no snow, they use an astro turf type surface on the ski jumps and wet it down, which makes it real slick. We were able to see some of the practicing on the jumps. Our tour took us up to the top of the ski jumps and we don’t see how anyone has the nerve to jump out that high up! Kudos to the athletes! After the tour and a look at the museum and the venue for the Luge , we headed ... read more

Travels with Just one Snowbird, Park City UT, April 13, 2013 What a day. I hope I remember it all!! Kristine left for Coachella (massive multi stage concert) in Palm Springs on Thursday. Lou and I have been fending for ourselves. He decided, if we could find someplace for Maggie to spend the day, Saturday, he would take me to Wendover UT/West Wendover NV, to check out the casinos. You know there was no way I was not going to find a wonderful place for Maggie to spend the day, and between us, we did. Neighbor and good friend, Susel, mother of twins, volunteered when she heard our plans. Susel and family including Maggie had many events to choose from, the last day of skiing before the mountain closes, swimming, gymnastics, bowling…..Maggie left at 9:30 am ... read more

Hi. It's me. Surprised? No one is more surprised than me that I am blogging. This is a family vacation, and I tend to keep those close to the best, but so much good stuff happened so far on this trip, I just have to share. This trip to Park City was planned in January, long before I knew my daughter would be setting a wedding date for July, 2013. I planned to come to UT for granddaughter Maggie's 8th birthday, April 7. Now with the wedding looming on us, this is the perfect time to be here, there are lots of things the mother of the bride can help with. I visit for at least 2 weeks, just because it takes me 5 to 7!days to acclimate to the high altitude. I am useless and ... read more
