Sometimes it’s hard to sit and write something meaningful. Especially if you are in a new and exciting place. Maybe not entirely new, but definitely exciting! As you know, we are back in Vancouver, Canada. You can follow our current doings here.
But for now, let’s go back to Salt Lake City, the capital of the beautiful state of Utah. We had luck to be there in the begging of spring. We’ve seen the most spectacular cherry blossoms on the Capitol! And the view from the Capitol Hill is pretty decent too. We enjoyed walking the streets a lot, although beeing the only person on the sidewalk can be a strange feeling.
To be honest for the whole month, we’ve spent in Utah we’ve experienced beeing watched and judged because we walked. After a few weeks, we’ve discovered that the only people that are walking (instead of driving a car) are homeless or extremely poor people… Here everything is made for people in cars even ATMs were drive-through… Such a bizarre place, don’t you think? But apparently, this is how you do it in the USA. At least in two biggest towns in Utah.
Except the only driving and no walking culture, we found Salt Lake City very amusing. Partially because it’s a Mormon’s headquarters and in the downtown almost everything is Mormon-related. The one thing you have to visit is a stunning church in the heart of the town with extremely well-maintained gardens.
In conclusion even if not from religious motives, you should definitely check this city out. And it’s actually on the way to glorious National Parks such as Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park.
