I did arrive a bit later than anticipated on Tuesday evening. I flew through San Fransisco and I have rarely been able to fly through SFO without a delay or a cancellation.
I have to admit that the last couple of weeks, I feel like I have been in a constant state of worshiping God, because I have been out in God's creation. I keep thinking how beautiful and wonderful creation is and marvel at its beauty, both in Canada and the US.
Julie is knowledgeable about the hiking and biking trails around Salt Lake City. The first trail we did was 1.5 miles (a little over 2 km) around Silver Lake.

|Yes, I was standing in the middle of the road. :)|

Next stop on the visit was to the Fielding Carr ranch. It brought back memories of living on the farm growing up, although much of the machinery there was significantly older than what we used on our dairy farm growing up. That was also the place where many of the bison were located.

I put together a couple of the videos I made during this trip. You can hear and see some of the sights and sounds.
We made it back to the house in time to shower and finish packing up so I can catch my flight to Vancouver, BC. Joel and Julie were fantastic hosts. I enjoyed my time in Utah and would recommend visiting there for the rich Morman history and the wonderful hiking and biking opportunities. I felt quite spoiled, having so many opportunities to visit a number of places this month!
Next up, Penticton, BC.
