We had a great time staying at the Wasatch Mountain State Park. The park is about 20 min outside of downtown Park City. Our first foray into town for a laundry run was a success. Quaint and super fancy shops, a yummy deli for lunch, and a few conversations with delightfully friendly locals. So, as often happens with us, we look at each other and say “yeah, I could live here!” We know that feeling will happen over and over on our trip so we move on.
I was able, with some helpful directions from a guy in Fish Heads (a nice fly shop in Heber), to make my way to a public access on the Provo River and caught a beautiful brown trout! As Brad put it, I knocked the stink off. It felt good.
The next day Brad planned to ride down the WOW trail (Wasatch over Wasatch). We shuttled him to the top of the mountain. No sooner did we return to the campsite, where he would be ending his ride in an hour or so, when I looked up and saw a big black cloud heading towards the mountain top behind us!! I knew he would be in for an exciting ride, and just hoped he would not be hit by lightening! Indeed it was exciting, and some torrential rain briefly, but no direct lightening hits, thank goodness.
Our last day we headed to the Utah Olympic Training Center. Such a cool place. We took the chair lift up, Kimberly and I rode back down while Brad and Virginia rode the Alpine slide! After that, they did the zip line, tubed down the huge ski jump, and did a high ropes adventure course. Fun day!!
We departed Utah for Oregon, via two long days of driving. We were rewarded with great times in Portland. Details to follow!
