PARK CITY and SALT LAKE CITY UTAH – Still in Utah. I spent last night in Park City for a couple of reasons. In the first place there’s actually not a first rate hotel in Salt Lake – all of the action is up where the ski resorts are. In the second place it Park City presents an opportunity to take in some landscape. So I stayed in Park City last night and woke up to this Disney-like former mining town. I grabbed some store fronts with my M9 and then put together an eight mile hike above the Stein Eriksen resort. Stein Eriksen has grown dramatically since I was last here. Sort of Los Vegas in the very, very high desert. There’s nothing alpine about the scenery here. It’s semi-arid bumps at very high altitude. With some selective framing I managed to get some reasonable scenery.

I ended the day at the Salt Lake Country Club. This was the social institution when I was growing up but I’m not so certain now. Highway construction has ruined the golf course, at least from a scenic standpoint and it feels old. Who know. Anyway, the second evening of my high school reunion happened here.

Images above Dear Valley are with my 25mm Summilux lens; at the reunion I was shooting with my Noctilux. All on my M9.
