When I lived in New England, I grew most of my own food in the back yard. The soil had been improved and the rain came out of the sky. A few years after moving to Utah I pledged to quit trying to be a backyard farmer. I didn't improve the soil enough...
Today 3,000 American flags are fluttering in the breeze on the Sandy Town Green in remembrance of those who died on September 11, 2001. Each flag bears a tag with a few lines about the person it represents. They are not forgotten. The field of flags ...
It's an annual event in Midway at the 2002 Olympic cross country skiing venue. Scrappy little herding dogs round up a group of wily range sheep and herd them up and down the hillside and through gates. The final challenge is to separate the flock and...
Mirror Lake is a peaceful place and there's a boardwalk and a good path all the way around it. Take a picnic, sit at one of the lakeside tables and enjoy the scenery and calm. If you like to fish, the lake is full of them just waiting for your lure o...
Get out of the valley heat and into a different world. Drive up to Silver Lake. You're likely to see a moose, potguts (Uintah ground squirrels) and a few ducks. The small lake is stocked, so fishing can be good. Or just watch. We're so lucky to live...
Alta's wildflowers are at their best right now. Fields of pink, blue, yellow, purple and red await you at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. They don't last long, so drive up and see them now. It's a fabulous show and it's free. Drive up the can...
We were hiking at Brighton and met a real mountain man. Brochures show mountain men to be guys with grizzley beards, leather jackets with fringe on the sleeves and maybe a wolf for a companion. This guy wore jeans and a Tshirt and he didn't have a be...
There's no admission fee to see this dinosaur! He (or maybe it's a she) stands in a field in Draper. During some seasons, the dinosaur holds a beach ball, a pin wheel, a wreath or something else that's seasonal until the wind blows it away. It's a ho...
Watch the red, white and blue wave high -- really high -- above a canyon along the Wasatch Front. It's become an annual event and it's really worth a short drive to see it. The enormous flag is suspended above Little Willow Canyon and flutters consta...
We went up to Brighton for a walk and some cool breezes. As a bonus, we enjoyed the animals. The pot guts (Uintah ground squirrels) were scurrying around. One had a mouthful of dry grass -- probably to make an underground nest. Two marmots called to ...
I have two favorite solvents: finger nail polish and rubbing alcohol. If I can't remove marks or goo with those, I'm stumped. Then someone forwarded one of those emails that gets forwarded to everybody. It was the history of WD40 and it's myriad of u...
