    2nd train ride (Denver to Salt Lake)

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    What a ride! Wasn't allowed to smoke for 9 hours, drove 15 hours, but the view was all worth it! And apparently mooning people in the train when you are on the lakes in the Rockies is a thing... even the Amish had a blast watching that.

    Antelope Island park and The Salt Lake

    April 26 in the United States

    We had a lovely nights sleep in Carla and Wallys apartment. Brandon slept in the big kids room on his blow up bed.

    Isla and Raffie got a day off of school and the whole gang of us went to see Antelope Island State Park.
    Antelope Island is the largest of the Salt Lake islands and is surrounded by the Great Salt Lake. The Salt Lake is the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River.

    It was as warm day and visiting the island and seeing the lake was great, minus the biting gnats which just hatched. We saw pronghorn Antelope and 11 wild Bison that roam the island. We spent time walking out to the lake and feeling the hard rock\sand. We had lunch at the small grill on the island.

    Back at the apartment the kids soaked in the sun with water balloons and scootering. That night we also had smores at the cute public bbq\park area that the complex provides.

    Later that night Carla and elisa had free time and went to a local bar that had live reggae music. The bartender explained that in Utah, the draft beer can only have 3.2% alcohol while the canned\bottled beer can be any percentage. The state also recently moved the driving limit to .05 from .08 as well. You also can only buy liquor and wine in a liquor store. The wine also is very expensive here.

    Wheelers heritage farm, hiking & fun

    April 27 in the United States

    Today was pretty relaxing. Josh and elisa took the kids to a heritage farm which was only a few minutes from the apartment. They got to see farm animals, ride on the moo train, and played on the playground.

    Once the kids got home from school Carla took us all to a hike up in Little Cottonwood Canyon, checking out Lisa Falls. The drive there was only 20 minutes but the view of the Mountains waa amazing. Salt Lake City is a in the plateau of numerous mountain ranges. Some of the peaks still have snow on top and is just breathtaking. The day was a high 80\25 degrees so the waterfall was very fast and high due to all the snow melting.

    The hike was quick and steep and came right to the falls. As it was higher than usual, getting across to the center area meant to take shoes off and walk across the very cold water, or step on the rocks very carefully.
    Inara and brandon loved climbing all over.

    After the hike we went straight to dinner, which was at Classic Fun Center. This massive play place was overwhelming. The kids had a choice of skating\scootering, jumping on bouncy castles, jungle\climbing area that was the whole venue, Arcade games, a laser tag area and more. It was nuts. Brandon choose the scooter and bouncy area. He was in heaven. We had pizza and Inara just watched the kids scooting and skating. We didn't leave till 9pm.

    The night didn't finish there, as when we got back to the apartment, Wallys had his large family over to watch the Utah Jazz basketball team play in a play off game. Player number 2 is Australian too. It was a loud night with lots of Spanish being shouted from Wallys and his Puerto Rican family.

    Carla and Elisa left the apartment again and got a drink at the Wasatch brewery in the sugarhouse area of the city.

    Salt Lake is much smaller than we realized. We think that the name sounds like a big city, but the greater area is only over a million and is the same size as buffalo, New York. It is also warmer in the summer than expected, having summer days higher than 100. Cold is below freezing but they don't get tons of snow.

    To Salt Lake city, Utah

    April 25 in the United States

    Today we left Bryce Canyon area and made our way to Salt Lake City.

    Before we headed off we stopped at moss cave trail outside of the Bryce Canyon National Park.

    We had a small walk to a waterfall. Brandon had a bit of a fall and scraped his leg and arm but he was a strong boy and kept going. We did not go and see to cave and brandon wanted to clean up his scratches.

    We had a 4 hour drive. We stopped in a little run down town called Scipio where we were lucky enough to find a picnic table. The drive into the city is beautiful. Just mountains and more mountains with snow caps that are slowly disolving as the sun beats down on them.

    While we are in Salt Lake we are staying with a old highschool friend Carla and her family.

    Carla made us a lovely Puerto Rican dinner that the kids loved and had second and third helpings.

    Salt Lake und so

    July 10, 2017 in the United States

    Zweiter Tag in Salt Lake City. Da mussten wir uns natürlich den See ansehen, der der Stadt den Namen gab. Auch der Tempel der Mormonen durfte nicht fehlen. Noch ein oder zwei Bier mit sehr netten Leuten getrunken und der Tag war abgerundet. Die Nacht haben wir dann im Zug verbracht.

    The Canyon Hike

    May 8 in the United States

    I first planned to go on a hike to the Cecret Lake. But at the parking lot I realized that there is still to much snow to do that. On my way back I spontaneously stopped at a random parking lot and discovered an incredible hike where I basically climbed up a canyon up to the mountain.

    Motel6, Salt Lake City

    May 13, 2016 in the United States

    Nach fast 24h Anreise sind wir nun im Hotel in SLC (STR-AMS-ORD-SLC). Salt Lake City ist noch umringt von Schneebergen, was ziemlich schön ist.

    Gerade gabs noch ein Philly Cheese im iHop und nun freue ich mich auf ne Nacht in der Horizontalen 😴.

    Das beste am Tag: Ich habe mein heute angefangenes Buch fast schon durch. Endlich mal wieder richtig viel Zeit für Lesen gehabt!

    Mormon Temple

    May 14, 2016 in the United States

    Bevor es in die Natur geht, gabs mit dem Mormonen Temple ein klein wenig Kultur. Viele freiwillige Helfer haben sich um den Garten gekümmert. Leider hat der Mormonen Chor (wohl einer der besten der Welt) nicht gesungen, dieser tritt leider nur Sonntags auf.

    Jetzt noch zum Walmart und dann ab auf den Highway 🚗✌️

    I Love Waffles

    June 2 in the United States

    I have been following this food truck for years. They have expanded and made themselves into restaurants all over Utah, Arizona, Idaho, and Texas. Their waffles are amazing, so no wonder it took off. I had a lemon custard with raspberries and homemade whipped cream. So gooood! Justin had a sandwich and a cinnamon waffle. He was very hungry
