Completing the Bike Trail

Completing the Bike Trail

The bridge is in place to complete the bicycle trail along the Jordan River in SLC

The concrete down to the Fisher Mansion property is almost complete too.

Richard Kletting, architect of the Fisher Mansion, would have loved this project.
According to family and friends, Richard was always designing improvements for SLC.

Kletting and the Cullen

Kletting and the Cullen

Richard Kletting designed the Cullen building for Matthew Cullen and Jacob Moritz,
the owners of the Salt Lake Brewing Company.

When it was demolished in 1954, various pieces became parts of other buildings.

One of the places that host stone from the Cullen is the Lebanese Garden
in the Salt Lake City Peace Gardens.

A Stroll Among Thermals

A Stroll Among Thermals

 A fine day at Norris Geyers Basin
Saw wonderful thermals as usual and chatted with folks from all over the world.
There is laughter with trying to find a name for the sounds you hear.

Another stroll at Fountain Paint Pots brings colors to a new level.

Erythranthe guttata
Seep Monkey Flower

A refreshing walk to the falls
always fills me with wonder.

A glass of wine with Paul to share thoughts of the day
and what's coming up for the summer.

New Horizons

New Horizons

I am on an adventure in Yellowstone National Park.

I will just be working as a cashier this summer but am
headlong into writing my new biography about Richard Kletting.
It is a new road for me as I am co-authoring with an historian and architect.

Into the park this afternoon just to re-immerse myself into the environment.
It's been almost two decades since I've worked here.

I enjoyed some sights that have refreshed my soul.

The Madison River

Red Dog

Gibbon Falls
(I would like to rename this--Champagne Falls)
