Norm and Ginny come to town, sort of

If you have read this blog for long, or just know me well enough, you know that every few years we pack up and head to France for some skiing and touring around Paris.  The two people who have coordinated every one of these trips are Norman and Ginny Andrews. They are out in Utah this week for some early skiing.

The snow pack is pretty crappy so far, but we had a nice day of skiing yesterday at Park City Mountain Resort and today over at Alta.  They have skied their other days at Snowbird and Alta, and head home tomorrow.
It was great getting to see them, even though it was a short visit.

As we left Alta to head back to Park City, we got a wonderful view of the pollution we know as Salt Lake City.  Yes, that is Salt Lake down there.
As we get down near the mouth of the canyon, we get a better view of the wall of brown air.  Who wants to breath that crap?
From here you normally look out over 10-15 miles of city with a mountain range across the way.  Today, not so much.  I wonder why Salt Lake City has such high asthma rates.
You never see these pictures in the chamber of commerce brochures.
