Independence Day 🇺🇸

Independence Day fell on a Sunday this year, so the holiday seemed to extend over more days than normal.

On the 3rd, we spent the morning exploring the McPolin Farm Trail. The original farm was homesteaded in 1886, and the City of Park City purchased it in 1990 to preserve the historic open space.

That afternoon, Jim went to Heber City for a haircut!

Sunday morning we attended church at Crosspoint PCA and then had lunch at a restaurant called Bonnie and Clyde.

Unfortunately Park City canceled fire works this year due to drought conditions, so we drove down to Salt Lake City for ice cream and a show. We headed to the Utah State Capitol building because it is up on a high hill overlooking the entire valley. Despite sporadic storm cells, we were able to enjoy The Gateway firework display from about a mile off. Of course, it gets dark later here, so the fireworks didn’t commence until 10p and we didn’t arrive back to our condo until 11p!

On the 5th, Cappy moved the rig to Jordanelle State Park, just down the hill from our condo. We hiked in the Heber Valley that morning, played Wingspan in the afternoon while James took a good nap, and then checked out Cappy’s new campsite.
