Last summer, I had several opportunities to get out and see some of Utah's beautiful landscape. Walks at Nun's Park up to Bridal Veil Falls was a common trip and rather close by. Sundance isn't much farther up the road and we made it up there several times last year. The full moon chairlift ride was my personal favorite and I looked forward to it every month, but it was nice to go there when the sun was shining too.
When my mother-in-law and her husband came up to visit, we made a Sundance trip priority. As I have said in a previous blog, Sundance is beautiful, charming and peaceful. Going up in the summer impressed upon me the vibrancy of the mountains here.
"This place in the mountains, amid nature's casualness toward death and birth, is the perfect host for the inspiration of ideas: harsh at times, life-threatening in its winters of destruction, but tender in attention to the details of every petal of every wildflower resurrected in the spring. Nature and creativity obey the same laws, to the same end: life."
The kids did really well considering that we spent about an hour in the gift shop!
Their reward was late birthday gift shopping courtesy of Nanny and Grandfather!
I'm looking forward to more time at Sundance this summer. (I've even written down all the full moon chairlift dates.) If you ever want to come up with me, let me know! ;)
