Sep 16, 2014 - Last day & Morning at Wasatch Mountain State Park

Sept 16th, we went to Heber to do some final shopping and then stopped at a small place called Heber Old Town. It is a replica of an old western town.

Then there is Snake Creek Grill, The Heber Old Town Antiques, food, antiques, arts & crafts. Stone Source, marble, limestone and travertine. Stefanie Neal, art studio.

Sep 11, 2014 - Guardsman Pass - Our return

On Wednesday afternoon on Sept. 10, 2014, we decided it was our last chance to go see the fall foliage even though it was just starting to turn. So we headed up highway 222, the Guardsman Pass road heading towards Park City. We didn't go all the way to the top because the higher we went the less the foliage was turning. We did see some very colorful sights and these are the photos. Hope you enjoy them!!!

Aug 6, 2014 - Heber Valley Railroad & trail ride

Well, we finally got some free time to go enjoy ourselves. We have been busier than a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter. (They are doing that here as we speak). We lost two sets of camp hosts, so are down to 3 couples for the whole campground. And this week one set of the camp hosts went on vacation, so it is just Merry, myself and Robert and Sarah. They should have at least 6 couples and probably 7 to ensure good coverage. This camp ground has 3 loops with 45 to 47 camp sites per loop plus a group camping area and a day use pavilion....

Jul 17, 2014 - Strawberry Reservoir

Thursday, July 17, we took Parker in for grooming at Heber City Petco. While we waited for him we decided to investigate Strawberry Reservoir. It is only about 25 miles from Heber City. We had been told that it was really pretty. Well, I guess that depends on you definition of pretty. It is mostly sage brush country, rolling hills, and very few trees. The reservoir itself is quite large and is known as a premier boating and fishing center for this area. It is in the Uinta National Forest of the Wasatch Mountains. They have Bear Lake...

Jul 16, 2014 - Alpine Loop Scenic By-Way

Wednesday, we decided to drive the Alpine Loop Scenic By-Way. We left from home (where else?) and headed for Heber City, from there we took U.S. 189 south into Provo Canyon. A few miles into the canyon we turned off on Utah 92 (this is the Alpine Scenic Loop By-Way) heading west into American Forks Canyon. Just a short way into the canyon we stopped at Robert Redford's Sundance Mountain Resort. This is a fairly large resort offering lodging in the form of 3 groups of rustic but elegant cabins complete with stone fireplaces, soaking tubs,...

Jul 10, 2014 - Touring Midway

On Thursday we decided to tour around Midway and the local area. We started by touring Main Street and photographing some of the more picturesque buildings. In the mid 1800's, a large contingent of Swiss settlers came to Midway and the surrounding valley. Their influence still shows in the local architecture. Many of the buildings show a definite Swiss influence. One of our stops was at the Town Square Park, which hold many events, including summer concerts. Oklahoma is being presented later this Month. There is a skate arena (large...

May 18, 2014 - Wasatch Mountain State Park, Midway, UT

We left Idaho Falls early in the morning heading down I15. We stopped for lunch at a truck stop at McCammon, ID. The only part of the town that we saw was the truck stop at the interstate interchange. The town itself is pretty small. Had a sandwich, walked Parker and moved down the road. We follow I15 all the way to Roy, UT where we branched off on I84 heading east. At mile post 91 we stopped at the rest area - a really pretty spot. I84 follows the Weber river. At the rest stop it widens into a small lake, where there were quite a few...

The Big Top Balloon Crew had a great first filight in the Walla Walla Valley this morning. Our sponsor is the City of College Place. We flew off the football field of Walla Walla High School with a lot of the student looking on. Our passengers were Sue Reay and Jon Rickart from the City.

Green grass and lots of it to lay about. It was great! More...

Jan 19, 2008 - Moving day-Marriot Summit Watch to Marriot Mountainside

January 19, 2008 The plan for January 19 was elaborate. Susan and I had gotten into Summit Watch and Mountainside by trading our Christmas and New Year’s weeks. But our weeks were treated separately, so when weeks came up for Sundance to trade, we took the only weeks that were available. Our Summit Watch week ended on Ja. 19, our Marriott Mountainside week began on Jan. 20. We didn’t have a place to stay on the 19th. We knew this, so Susan and I had been working on the Summit Watch and Mountainside staff since we got there to find a way to...
