Back From Utah

Just got back from a week long trip in Utah.  It was fantastic!  First night we got to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse and walk around Temple Square.  The next day we went to Utah Olympic Park and saw the sights of the 2002 Winter Olympics as well as visited Park City and rode the Alpine Slide and Alpine Coaster.  The following day we hiked up Mt. Timpanogas and got a tour through the caves.  I hadn't been through them since I was a child. We then left northern Utah and headed to Southern Utah for a visit of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park.  We hiked up the narrows at Zion's (we weren't really dressed to do this) and hike down into the Queen's Garden at Bryce.  Both excellent experiences.

Lastly, we moved onto Vegas where Chris got to experience all the thrill rides on top of the Stratosphere and the Speed coaster at Sahara.  I sat these out... was too pooped from all the previous activities.  We also saw the Steve Wyrick magic show at Planet Hollywood.

Great trip.  Thanks to my family for being flexible and providing such a nice time for us while in Utah.

Here are some photos of the trip.  More to come.  I still need to merge in the pictures Chris took (there's lots of 'em).
