Day 16 Salt Lake City, UT

Friday we drove up to Park City with Neil and his family. First stop was the Tanger Outlets to shop for back to school stuff for the boys. I couldn’t believe that we’d driven over 4000 miles to go to a Tanger outlet. Just like Tilton, NH only bigger.

We had lunch at a Chinese restaurant in Park City then we went up to the Olympic Park. This was one of the sites for the 2002 Winter Olympics. This was the site for all of the ski jumping events. It is still in use for olympic training and world class ski jumping events.

The boys did the zip line and adventure course.

We did the tour that took us up to the top of the big ski jump. luge, and bobsled. Here are some of the pictures from the top.

They also do training for ski jump and freestyle skiing even during the summer months. The tracks are like a giant slip’n’slide. They end up landing into the big pool. That way noone gets hurt.

Saturday, we’re going to local farmers’ market. Weather here is going to be hot and dry. Forecast high of 98F. Pretty dry.
