My kids and I climbed "Ensign Peak" last week in honor of Salt Lake City's 169th birthday. While we were surveying the vastly beautiful landscape before us, I had a moment. I was reminded just how awesome Utah is. I see why the first people to settle the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, which were pioneers seeking a better life, ended their arduous journey here. Their leader, when he looked out across this valley said, "This is the place."
He nailed it. Salt Lake is THE place.
The Salt Lake Valley, which is nestled and protected by some pretty incredible mountains has it all. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Want the excitement and prestige from city life? Salt Lake has it. New buildings constantly being erected, old ones being updated, shopping, modern technology, restaurants for every palate and easy access public transportation make Salt Lake City very desirable. Want to enjoy all that the mountains have to offer? Salt Lake has that too. Suburb life? Yep, that too.
After our hike we toured the unique and historical architecture of the Salt Lake Avenues. I loved the mix of old, renovated and new. Every street has something magical to offer from timeless red brick homes to updated white trim on several of the homes. My mind was reeling with ways I'd love to incorporate some of the old look and mix that with a more modern flare. I'll take you on a tour. See for yourself. I'd love to know which home is your favorite!
