Day Trip to Park City

Sometimes it feels like I am running at 500 miles per hour ... and still in the same place.  Family visits are joyful but stressful and there have been some challenges :) - was that PC?  The best part is getting out and about, doing day trips and indulging our rabid little foodie palates.  And indulge we have!

on the way to Park City
We had a lovely day in Park City - although I admit to liking it better in the snow :) and Empire Pass is still the place I would love to live and run my little Bloggy Kingdom ... the Montage at Deer Valley is coming along nicely and still targeting December 2010 for opening ... 35K foot spa ... HELLO!

 Lunch was cheesy goodness on the balcony of the Red Banjo - Park City's oldest restaurant and we were waited on by the current owner who is third generation.  We munched on pizza with chicken and artichokes and meatball sandwiches, sipped our black cherry vanilla and bubblegum sodas and Apricot Hefeweizen beer (which was SO good, we got some for home!) all while admiring the view down main street.  The food at Red Banjo was good and the prices were reasonable and very family friendly. 

It was Viper Day in Park City ... as in cars ... a bit too much on fumes and testosterone for me but the boys loved it.

And what would a day in Park City be without a visit to our favorite Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory?  Thankfully, Main Street is perfect for walking off a sugar high!

The day wrapped up with a drive home via Salt Lake, a visit into the Park City Nursery to visit their pumpkin patch and some lovely views along the way.

 All in all - Park City is a great day trip from Provo ... our next day trip is the Alpine Loop and Sundance Resort!
