As most of you all ready know I was recently in Park City, Utah for the super awesome evo’11 conference. During one of the panel sessions my Energizer Bunny self snuck out and made my way downtown with camera(s) in hand. What a treat it was! I am a mountain girl at heart. Any opportunity I have to be outside embraced and hugged by giant peaks is a very special treat.
Park City is a charming town and I wanted to share some of it’s beauty with you. In my post The Great Outdoors,a Bear, Boots, Bloggers and Friends I shared some snippets taken with my iPhone. Here is a little more to entice you…..
Please don’t let this travel post confuse you with where I am right now. Telluride. I told you I am obsessed with the mountains and get out of the OC as often as possible to be in my *happy place* Love those direction signs above, in this lifetime I need to visit each and everyone of those places….
Symbols of that history are everywhere you turn.
PC has the yearly Food and Wine Classic. Now that sounds like a lot of fun. Have you guys ever been to a foodie festival? If so which ones. I would love to go to this one some day.
I visited town on a Saturday morning between 9-11am. People were out grabbing coffee, enjoying brunch, running, cycling and smiling. The blue bird skies and mountain views could put a grin on anyone’s face.
Flowers were in full bloom everywhere. Bright, vibrant colors…..
The dogs were happy too. Isn’t this Weimaranar darling?
The homes are full of local charm and creativity.
These old rustic buildings tempt me to take a few pieces home for props. It is very hard to look and not touch.
The colors of the buildings are no less bright than the flowers…..Check out that playful garden sculpture made out of snow shovels.
All shades of purples, turquoise and everything in between play beautifully off the bluebird skies.
A little vintage Americana theme in this house……I love those little hanging lanterns and the Jeep is cool too.
Snowboards, skis, and all kinds of treasures adorn the sides of buildings.
People say the skiing is amazing in Utah. The snow is dry, fluffy and abundant. I have never skied there but hope to try it some day. There are an abundance of mountain resorts to choose from. Each have their own unique characteristics. Everyone I talked to there had a favorite for very specific reasons. From The Canyons, to Deer Valley, Park City, Alta, Sundance……I have no doubt in my mind each mountain is heavenly.
Must. Visit. All.
In the mean time you can find me tucked away in my sweet little box canyon. Do you have a favorite mountain hideaway? Have you ever been to Park City?
