The past week

We had a great visit from Laura and Jacky Smale this week. These are the two youngest daughters of Julie's sister Sue. Jacky came out from Hillsboro, OR and Laura came from her university, Gonzaga in Spokane, WA.  We did some of the normal Park City summer events: shopping, eating, hiking and music.

They both got a good workout from our normal self-inflicted deal:  if you want to eat a Royal Street hamburger, you have to hike up to the top of Bald Mountain first.  It's a lot of work for people who live near sea level, but the burger is worth it.
We went to this summer's last Deer Valley Wednesday night concert.  You can tell summer is ending by the clothing everyone is wearing.
While the girls were here, I still managed to get up at 5:45 to go rowing out on the Jordanelle.  One of the advantages of getting up early is that you catch some cool sunrises.
The girls have flown back so they can be ready for school next week.  Hoping we get them back out for another visit sometimes soon.

In a completely unrelated photo, this is how you pull a hot tub off a deck in Park City.  I have to guess that it is being replaced.  It could have been more fun just to give it a shove and then pick up the pieces in the street.
