Utah travels

June 3, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
Well I didn’t get to Moab in Utah as it was four hours from where I was staying. Plus I had my tagalongs to consider. But we did get to see some of the spectactacular sights Utah has to offer, including the beauty of the Sundance Resort.

The first thing I notice as we touched down at the Salt Lake City airport Friday are the mountains. Coming from an area that is mostly prairie, the mountains are a nice change of pace. Ross and I manage to find the hotel we were staying at and were able to check in early, 10:30 a.m. Then Shane (the friend of mine and Michele’s) arrived at the hotel some time later. Of course, Shane’s ready to go and do something. I was still groggy from not being able to sleep the night before and getting on a plane at 6:30 a.m. We head to Provo because Ross wanted to meet this guy who created an online comic strip he admires, Schlock Mercenary. The artist sometimes spends afternoons at this shop called Dragon’s Keep. Luckily I had sprung for a GPS system for our rental, so we were able to find the place. The GPS, which I affectionately dubbed “Bob,” came in quite handy for most of the time we were there.

Fortunately the comic strip artist was there, so Ross bought a couple of the books he created and had them signed. The guy also did a couple of sketches on the back pages. He also told us of a scenic drive between Provo and Sundance. We stopped at a few places, snapping photos of the mountains, checking out Bridal Falls and we even made our way to Sundance Resort. We were going to continue on the road that went past Sundance, but it wasn’t going to open until the following Monday, the 1st. Darned snow.

There’s a lot more to tell and I did promise photos...but I had lost my camera at Antelope Island by the Great Salt Lake. Luckily some guy named Glenn and his family had found it. I should get in the mail soon.
