The thing about Utah is that you can’t just say “Utah.” And certainly not “utah.” It’s “UTAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!” Said preferably on a mountaintop a la Maria von Trapp. Allison shall demonstrate…
What can I say… Utah was awesome. I was expecting it would be sort of like Colorado, but I actually liked it much better than Colorado. I was so surprised by how green it was, how huge the mountains and lakes and waterfalls were. Everything is just epic in Utah. Driving up to Sundance from Salt Lake City, Allison and I just kept looking at one another sort of flabbergasted… “Is this real life? Where are we?!” That much nature was sort of overwhelming. There’s nothing even remotely like it near New York City.
Allison & I rode the ski lift to the top of the mountain our first day there, and that’s where most of these photographs are from. As we were going up, we were definitely terrified, but it was so worth it, and I kind of wanted to go on it again when it was all over. We saw tons of wildlife – chipmunks, deer that went bounding across our porch, butterflies everywhere, spiders (unfortunately). I sort of expected the animals to break into song at any moment. The sky was bluer than blue, the air was clean, the people were ridiculously nice, and it was just an all around magical place. One that I am definitely anxious to take John back to.
