This was our first impression of Utah. Very dry and dessert like. But it wasn't hot.
As we started to see signs of civilization, we noticed that the mountains were getting bigger and prettier too. Finally signs of life. We were glad to see this. Salt Lake City pretty much has mountains all around it.
Driving through the city was pretty fun. We/ Tom found us a really nice hotel that had a kitchen in it. I loved that, so that we could save some money by not going out for breakfast, and eating lunch there too, or eating dinner there whichever worked out best for that days activities. It did help.
Tom is mapping out the next day's plans.
