The Bonneville trail is where we chose to do our weekly, long training run. I didn’t realize the first half of the run would be all uphill (my husband was in charge of finding a trail). The good news is that the second half was all downhill.
We went 4.5 miles up because we needed a nine-mile run this week. I got a little lost on the way back, so I ended up with close to ten miles.
Bewilder Brewery has a brunch on Sundays that offers extravagant waffles. We started the day with a hilly, ten-mile run, so I figured I earned some waffles! Beer was not really my style, but I’m a finicky beer drinker.
Temple in Temple Square. The Salt Lake Temple was under construction, so not very photogenic.
Great stop for a cocktail.
Seeing the Great Salt Lake was kind of sad. There’s still beauty there, but drought has wreaked havoc on the lake.
Small, local distillery. The malted bourbon was my favorite.
Fabulous for dinner and cocktails. The beverage menu was forty pages long. Many vegetarian options.
Another cool cocktail bar. I loved the vibe.
The trail was accessible at a rest stop we stopped at, so we hiked a little ways just to check it out.
Another short hiking stop on our way to Moab.
Nine miles of hiking at Arches. We made it there before 7 am, so the temps were nice and the crowds low. When we left after noon, it was very hot and crowded. Cars were lined up to get in.
