Here Is What I Learned From My First Trip to Utah
Cathy Curtis Abbott
You can’t just spot a Mormon, that would be rude, but you can spot snow skiers just by looking at them. They have a “cool” vibe. Park City and Deer Valley are about 5 minutes away from each other, the slopes are everywhere, ’cause that is the main reason people flock there.
The deer in your backyard are HUGE and if they were in a staring contest – they’d win. Our entire American Bobsled Olympians are handsome – to a man- they could be models and sell calendars. Two are from Florida (who knew) and I am officially a fan of Adrian Adams now. Most are recruited for strength and pushing abilities. Going to the Winter Olympic museum is free and a must for your American pride.
I learned that the snowshoes I saw everywhere on walls are not those you will now use in 2021. That was a relief. But you want cardio – It takes “walk a few miles in my shoes” to a whole new level. It is breathtaking. The snow for the snow angel delivered beautifully and the snow sparkles like God threw out about a million Swarovski crystals each day. My friends Sharon, Steve, and Niala are terrific travelers but won’t make snow angels. I don’t know why?
The High West Distillery is worth the visit, interesting street art is everywhere (hello Sedona) & people are nice. Lastly, even though we ventured to Sundance we didn’t spot Robert Redford. Maybe next time.
