I really wish my work had job sites in cool cities like Las Vegas or New Orleans or Cancun, but instead we just have an office in Salt Lake City. After dinner on my second night in town, I found I was getting kind of antsy with being cooped up, and so decided to drive into the city.
I drove around until I found the temple in the middle of town. Say what you will about the Mormons, but they know how to put up a striking building. The temple at night was magnificent. My pictures don’t really do it justice.
There was a nice reflecting pool there, too, so I snapped a picture of that:
Right up the street from the temple is the state capitol building. I hadn’t noticed it on my first trip out here a few years ago, but it looked incredible lit up at night so I drove around until I found a spot to park, and then ran up there to stand in the freezing desert wind and snap a few pics:
Later, inexplicably, there were ducks.
And that wraps up the last few days. Is it Friday yet? I could really use some sleep. And when I say sleep really I mean a stiff drink.
