My husband and I returned yesterday from a trip to Salt Lake City, which is the reason I didn’t post a blog article Monday or Tuesday of this week. With today’s post, I thought I’d take a momentary break from craft-related articles to share some photos from the trip.
While I knew before we traveled there that the mountains around Salt Lake City look nothing like the Appalachian mountains in which I grew up, the landscape was still a bit of a shock. The city itself is completely flat – no hills, no valleys, no nothing! – yet it’s completely surrounded by beautiful snow-covered peaks. (Or, at least they were snow-covered while we were there.) I couldn’t get enough of these strange mountains, as the photos below attest.
I hope you enjoy the photo gallery, and I’ll be back with more crafty topics tomorrow.

Arturo and I spent a morning driving through Emigration Canyon and exploring its side roads. The rest of the photos were taken on that drive.
