Y.S.N.P. trip 2012 day 5: Salt Lake City – Antelope Island – Park City

After a Starbucks drive through coffee breakfast I drove from my Hotel to a downton Parking Garage near Temple Square to stroll around downton Salt Lake City. I visited the Temple Square, headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is a lot to see and all tours are free and the employees very kind and explained a lot. Very impressive was the Conferecne center auditorium with a capacity of 21.000 people. There was the possibility to finally go up to the Adminitrative Building tower for a view of the city. I postponed this to later to have better sun for the fotos. I walked up the State capitol hill

wich has nice residiential aparment buildings and lots of gardens to see the Utah state capitol. I also went into the Utah Visitor Center opposite to Sate Capitol Building to buy a nice Utah T. Then I went back to Temple Squre where a nice lady accomponied me to the top floor for the views over Salt Lake City. Again she was very communicative and answered many questions. It was 11.30 am and I had still plenty of time until my departute from SLC airport. The Visitor Center had recommended me to visit Antelope Island State Park due to my interest in the Salt Lake. Its only 20 minutes north of Downtown and I headed there for a 2 hours driving tour on the island. Lots of wildlife and amazing views to the Lake and the mountains. Than I had still time and decided to drive to Park City which I knew from the Sundnace Film festival taking place there. A lady in Temple Square had recommed it worth being a visit. Indeed it is very pittoresque small ski paradise at high elevation of 10000. feet. I had late lunch there and then took the chance to see  the Fatali Foto Gallery (met Mrs. Fatali who showed me around). It was then time to drive  to Salt Lake City  airport for my flight to ???. Here I wrote the day 5 blog entry during waiting for the boarding. When I returned the Rental car the receipt showed me that  I had driven unbelievable 1588 miles in this 5 days. It was my basecamp in West Yellowstone which caused me daily long drives to touring the Y.S.N.P., as well as the long drives in the park and the drives between SLC and Yellowstone. The Chevrolet Equinox was not bad, but I liked much more my Jeep Grand Cherokee model 2012 which I had last year.
