Salt Lake City Scoop

Arrived in Salt Lake City yesterday for the Stampin' Up! Annual Convention, my favorite time of year! After an early morning flight (amazing how I can jump out of bed at 4 am when it has to do with Stampin' Up!), we arrived at 10:45. For the first time, we actually took a tour to see some of the sights of the city!

We had an amazing tour guide named Chris! He provided us so much knowledge that my brain could not retain it all. Really, I should have tape recorded him, but the tour was four hours, so don't think that was possible.

Our first stop was the Great Salt Lake! What can I say about it? Well, it was salty and smelly. But of course, I had to go stick my feet in the water!!!








Then Vicki . . .







Then Ben had to get in on the action to! He doesn't like baths, so we just let him get really close to the water (his tail did get a little wet!!)







Our next stop was a tour of the Copper Mine. Let me tell you, the ride up (and down) the mountain was, well, interesting to say the least. While I didn't want to sit in the front seat, I was glad I did because it enabled me to get some great pictures. Here are just a few . . .












Its really sad because pictures just do not do justice to the beauty and spendor of the land!

I just wanted to share a splattering of pictures because you know I've taken a ton!!!

Until next time . . .
