salt lake city: the surrounding sights



skiiers will be familiar with little cottonwood canyon; it's home to snowbird and alta, two of the ultimate skiing experiences that utah has to offer. but it's also a nice scenic drive into the wasatch-cache national forest. if you visit during the winter months, make sure your car has four wheel drive, the road isn't plowed; just the way the locals like it. 


for a whole different scene, drive by great salt lake and turn south towards highway 199. while it's snowing in the mountains, it's all sunshine and pastures about an hour away.

and of course, be sure to check out these two delicious restaurants: lone star taqueria with their delicious fish tacos and pago, a delightful farm to table restaurant.
