Salt Lake City

This past Saturday, I got to explore Salt Lake City with Deb and Shep. They had scouted out the downtown and planned our morning run. Running is a great way to see a city. It was a beautiful time of year to visit Utah. I think the highlight of our SLC visit was going to the Dowtown Farmers Market. The market, in Historic Pioneer Park, is one of the largest that we have ever been to. First, we spent some time on the beautiful grounds of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The morning light was fabulous and the Salt Lake Temple was positively glowing. The flowers and gardens were stunning. We had an action packed agenda, so I had little time to dilly dally. I took a few photos, and we were on our way. 

After walking around the temple and then stopping by the Tabernacle, we headed over to Historic Pioneer Park. There were tons of vendors. We tested food samples, bought vegetables, shopped for crafts, and visited with some of the not-for-profit organizations who had set up booths. We were running, but there was a bicycle valet for those who came on two wheels. The vegetable bounty indicated that harvest time is here. The park was jammed with happy people enjoying the wonder of nature.


Debbie even got to try her hand at a few tricks, compliments of an illusionist dressed like a chef. 

It wasn’t too busy downtown. Salt Lake City was very clean and it was apparent that the authorities had everything under control.

This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆
