Beautiful Park City, Utah

Perhaps one of the most heavely places on earth are the spectacular mountains of Utah.  If you've never been, put it on your bucket list.  It is a feast of fun if you're any bit "outdoorsy".  And if you're not, the views are magnificent while you're having Sunday brunch at Stein Erickson's Lodge.

One of my favorite activities out here is mountain biking.   You can find information about hiking and biking trails Here.

A top 10 ride is the Mid Mountain Trail in Park City.  It starts out at Silver Lake Village at the Deer Valley ski resort.  You can rent a mountain bike at the resort and take the lift up to the start of the trail.  The MMT rolls along for 26ish  miles staying at about 8,000 feet.  It bends and winds its way around the mountain and allows you to ride past aspens, rock gardens, tall grasslands and awesome views of downtown and beyond. 

I'm headed out now for a short ride before we leave for Spudman.  Lucky me.


  1. We just got back from Park City 2 weeks ago, this was the 1st time vacationing there. We are going to make it an annual family vaca now. Mountain biking .... I begged someone to go with me everyday, no-one would but I told them all that next year I will go by myself if no-one wants to go. PC is beautiful.

  2. I will definately come in to Iron Gear. Maybe after school starts you'll be back? And you didn't say what days you are there. Thanks so much!


Que lindo es sonar despierto.
How lovely it is to dream while you are awake.
