When we were planning this trip in the late spring, we thought that it would be nice to rent a place to stay, in the middle of the trip, in order to get a break from our camper. So, after 2000 miles of driving, we stopped for 3 days in Salt Lake City to stay in a bungalow. It was really great to have basic amenities that we take for granted. For example: sometimes we had electricity, sometimes not, for half of the trip we didn’t have running water, our method of cooking was using a propane stove and fighting the wind, and getting ready for bed meant that we had to shuffle our clothes off of our beds and rearrange the stuff in our tiny camper.
The kids enjoyed getting a bit of TV time as we had been electronic free up until this point and then again after this. The parents enjoyed being able to cook soups and beans to stock up for the next stretch of the road trip.
To help them not become total zombies, we went to an awesome park directly across the street each night. Sometimes twice a day.
We attended church at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The message was simply Episcopal, love and help your neighbor. Sadly, several families let their children continue to disrupt the service so the cool vibes we were feeling quickly faded.
After church we went to a great museum called The Leonardo Museum. We were all free to explore the wide range of exhibits. We stayed here close to 4.5 hours and definitely could have stayed much longer. Us parents were getting tired!
Salt Lake City is such a cool place to visit.
Up Next Moab, Utah.
