Buckley coaches Jana Daley and Jenny Maxwell were leading training in Salt Lake City so, travel enthusiasts that they are, they left early the morning before and used every spare moment to see the sights.
Got a few hours in the Salt Lake City area to enjoy yourself? Here are some things they discovered:
Jenny: “Just off the main street of Park City. We had lunch here and loved it all, especially the burger.”
Jana: “Walk in and look around. It’s stunning, a former schoolhouse converted into an inn. Would love to stay here sometime.”
Guardsman Pass Road (closed in winter)
Jenny: “A fun, twisty drive over the mountains—views, snowy patches, and some scary curves. Easy to see why it’s closed in winter.”
Jana: “Unpretentious and beautiful. I'm thinking of coming back here with the whole family to ski.”
Jenny: “Amazing to finally see these golden trees and really experience what's meant by 'quaking Aspens.' Gorgeous drive, would love to spend more time here.”
Jana: “Such a cool business, outdoor gear with a mission. We bought souvenir t-shirts here and got to chat with the staff about how they work.”
Jenny: “I stopped traffic in a not-great way trying to cross the street using one of these safety flags. Love the idea but didn’t quite grasp the concept: It’s not a license to cross at will. You still have to walk with the light. Oops.”
Jenny: “Happened on this walk one morning while getting a little exercise—takes you through Salt Lake City’s history, including the red light district.
Jana: “Of course, you can't come to Salt Lake City and not see these.”
Jenny: “I confess. I was here twice a day for the awesome baked goods and charming vibe.”
Jana: “Beautifully done. Good coffee. Great find.”
Jenny: “Lots of local beers to choose from everywhere we went, but this one was our favorite.”
