Out to Park City

We picked up and moved out west this week. Back to the glorious weather in Park City. It turns out that we just squeeked by on getting the dog out here. If the weather at take-off or landing is supposed to be above 85, they won't ship a pet. Salt Lake City was running about 10 degrees above average and even landing at 10:23 in the morning, it was just barely cool enough. We all made it and the pets were absolutely wonderful. So far they are 2-for-2 on cross-country travel.

We got everything up and running in the condo, did mail, got groceries and such. We're now running fairly well and hopefully can take full advantage of all the activities here for July 4th.

The exciting thing is seeing some progress on the house we are building next door. The first step was clearing a good chunk of the lot and then building a 12 foot retaining wall at the top. The wall is almost done.

The next step will be a lot more grading, and then pouring the foundation. We have been very lucky that our lot is mostly soil and loose dirt. Other lots, only a hundred yards away, are nothing but rock. They have to spend lots of time and effort blasting rock or hammering it out. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
