I LEFT MY HEART IN PARK CITY, UTAH...................


                                                              
THIS IS A CITY WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR...........We spent 4 days in Park City.....and I fell in love with it.


I'll show you a few of the pics I took of the Main Street and the surrounding residential area.  All of the buildings are of this feel.......as well as ALL of the housing.   





THE  HOUSES ARE PAINTED EVERY COLOR OF THE RAINBOW.........
AND A LOT OF THEM ARE RESTORED OLD MINERS COTTAGES.

THE ONES ABOVE ARE LOCATED RIGHT ABOVE MAIN STREET......YOU MUST UNDERSTAND....THIS IS AN OLD MINING TOWN AND IS BUILT RIGHT INTO THE MOUNTAINS AS MANY MINING TOWNS ARE.



YOU CAN SEE HOW GREEN THE SURROUNDING AREA IS AND OF COURSE THE MAGNIFICENT SKI SLOPES FOR WINTER SKIERS.

ON THE WAY INTO TOWN IS THIS LITTLE BEAUTY........


NOW CAN YOU UNDERSTAND WHY YOU COULD LEAVE YOUR HEART HERE........

I THINK THIS LITTLE TOWN HAS THIS PHILOSOPHY........

FILL WHAT'S EMPTY......EMPTY WHAT'S FULL........
AND SCRATCH WHERE IT ITCHES.

~~Alice Roosevelt Longworth~~

Pretty simple.....huh.......?

Have a blessed day dear friends.

                                                P.S.  Sorry I cannot visit as much as
                                                                                 normal.....but when we travel the
                                                                                  WI-FI is more difficult than
                                                                                    it is at home.

  1. Hello Jo, we love Park City and have spent many a day there... we snowmobile in the surrounding area and that old barn you show has looked the same forever! For years, the town was truly just a little old abandoned mining town that my daddy would take us to... it has changed drastically over the years, but still beautiful! Did you get a chance to go to Deer Valley? You would love that too! xoxo Julie Marie PS I was hoping to get to meet you when you were so close to Centerville!!!

  4. Awww Jo,

    You weren't so far away from me...

    Glad you got to see the wonder of it. Like Julie Marie, I remember it as a little 'ol mining town. Now it's known for some of the Olympic venues and where the movie stars hang out during the Sundance Festival. But it's fun to walk around and see all the fun shops and stuff.

    Keep in touch when you can, enjoy being together,sharing this awesome journey and know you're thought of often...

  5. Dearest Jo! THANK YOU FOR COMING AND LEAVING ME a French name for my dolly! It is L'ange blanc....you are so good!!! Oh, aren't those pics of my sister in law's just fabulous? She is a real pro, and whenever I go to her blog, I am literally taken back by some new photo she took in her home. Yes, her home! And look at that darling village you feature here! Don't you just love little enchanting places like this? How are you? I hope that you are not having to suffer too much with extreme heat...so many friends are either having beyond hot weather, or too much rain. Here in Minnesota, we are having an unusually perfect season!!!!

    Enjoy your week dearest, and thank you for always coming by...Anita

  7. What a beautiful place. Thank you, for sharing. I have never been to Utah, flew over parts of it many years ago. Only saw Salt Lake City at night from the air. The lights were very pretty. Hugs

  9. My DH's Grandparents were some of the original Families that settled in Park City... they had a lovely Victorian there and many of his extended Family are buried in the local Cemetary, as was his Dad and Grandpa.

    When he took me there I fell in love too... though he laments that it has changed much now that the popularity of the place has attracted so many of the rich and famous. But I still found it to be enchanting.
