As most of you all ready know I was recently in Park City, Utah for the super awesome evo’11 conference. During one of the panel sessions my Energizer Bunny self snuck out and made my way downtown with camera(s) in hand. What a treat it was! I am a mountain girl at heart. Any opportunity I have to be outside embraced and hugged by giant peaks is a very special treat.

Park City is a charming town and I wanted to share some of it’s beauty with you. In my post The Great Outdoors,a Bear, Boots, Bloggers and Friends I shared some snippets taken with my iPhone. Here is a little more to entice you…..

Like most of the small mountain towns, Park City was a robust mining town. It was founded in 1869. PC has a fabulous history that is reflected in the preservation of it’s beautiful buildings.

PC has the yearly Food and Wine Classic. Now that sounds like a lot of fun. Have you guys ever been to a foodie festival? If so which ones.  I would love to go to this one some day.

I visited town on a Saturday morning between 9-11am. People were out grabbing coffee, enjoying brunch, running, cycling and smiling. The blue bird skies and mountain views could put a grin on anyone’s face.

The homes are full of local charm and creativity.

These old rustic buildings tempt me to take a few pieces home for props. It is very hard to look and not touch.

The colors of the buildings are no less bright than the flowers…..Check out that playful garden sculpture made out of snow shovels.

All shades of purples, turquoise and everything in between play beautifully off the bluebird skies.

Snowboards, skis, and all kinds of treasures adorn the sides of buildings.

People say the skiing is amazing in Utah. The snow is dry, fluffy and abundant. I have never skied there but hope to try it some day. There are an abundance of mountain resorts to choose from. Each have their own unique characteristics. Everyone I talked to there had a favorite for very specific reasons. From The Canyons, to Deer Valley, Park City, Alta, Sundance……I have no doubt in my mind each mountain is heavenly.

Must. Visit. All.
