(Sorta) Salt Lake City

This is the only picture I have from this stop. One quick look at The Great Salt Lake.

I took others. The Mormon Temple. The State Capitol. But, they're gone. They vanished somewhere between my camera and the computer.


There's some poetic justice in this mystery. You see, we weren't planning to stop in Salt Lake City. Now, it's like we weren't ever really here.

Our unplanned stop had one purpose: Get our house heat pump checked out. We found a certified service dealer, called and made sure they could do the work and drove 288 miles to the dealer.

Like our pictures, the trip to the dealer was a bust. The only thing we can say is avoid Blaine Jensen RV in Kaysville, Utah, at all costs.

That experience pretty much soured us on Salt Lake City. We sat around in the shade of the KOA for the weekend and tried to cool off. The absolutely best part of the stay was a nice happy hour tonight with Sharon and Fred, our neighbors from Zion River Resort. Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures of that get together. We were having too much fun.

Tomorrow, SLC will be a vague and distant memory. We're heading someplace cool!

I wanted to leave a comment but not sure how. In case it somehow goes through and gets to you -- that is a bummer about Salt Lake 'cause there are some nice things there.

I just sent an e-mail to you but now it is obvious I need help in this commenting area. I have tried to do this on a couple of blogs I have read but I am not sure I did it right. I don't know what it means by choose an identity and below that. At least I am going to try to do it. I just wrote that I wouldn't "hit" one of the buttons and then I did and lost what I had previously written (I think).
Mary, you don't know how patient you are!

I agree with simply, gail. SLC has some really great places to see and visit. It's kind of like Moab for us, - Must give it a second chance. Sure hope you find someplace cooler. Good luck with that one.
