Falling in love with a mountain . . . or summer in Park City


Here is the story of our summer so far in Park City - it has been nothing short of amazing.
Temple Square, home to the center of the Mormon religion.
One of the things that we've done while here is to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse and then perform.  It's an incredible undertaking and to think that they are all volunteers makes it such a gift to hear them sing together.
 While here we have done lots and lots of hiking.  Park City has an amazing system of trails, they go for miles and miles.  The kids have gone up to about 5 miles.
 One of the most memorable hikes we all did together was to Stuart Falls near Sundance.  Sundance is a magical place, nestled at the base of a majestic mountain called Timpanogos.  This is the mountain that I am in love with.


There are wonders of nature at every turn here.  It has been so invigorating seeing plants, birds, bugs and rocks that are so different from our beautiful Florida flora & fauna.  Even the pinecones are unusual and beautiful.
