    I thought DC had a very unique idea of promoting art with all the colorful giant pandas located all over the city. Well Utah, Salt Lake City used the same concept using Buffalo sculptures painted with all different designs and located them all over the city. I had the pleasure of seeing at least two located on Antelope Island. I've read that in Wyoming they used Horse Scultpures and Sedona AZ, they used Javelinas. So head over to the Visitors center and pick up a book that will tell you where each is located. I love art and I think this gives the artist and the communiy a way to share in eachothers pride in their community

    There are many lovely sights to enjoy! Salt Lake City or LSD Square has some of the most lovely fountains to enjoy. Take the time to wonder around and take in the sights. I think you will enjoy them very much!

    Drive through Logan Pass to Bear Lake

    Entering Logan Canyon
    4 more images

    After we left Salt Lake City we drove through dirty, hazy air up Interstate 15 to the exit for Logan. Right at this exit there was a gas station with unbelievably low prices for gas. After filling up our rental car we got on Highway 91/89 which took us to Logan. Here we took Highway 89 and entered Logan Canyon where we left the haze behind and started a lovely drive. Even on September 6th we were starting to see some color. The road itself is a heavily traveled road. The drive reminded us of the ride to Julian, in California. Sage and scrub junipers were on the hillside and we saw tall firs along the Logan River. The aspens were still green in this area. When leaving Logan Pass we encountered those dreaded words on a road trip "ROAD WORK AHEAD". We drove through seven miles of road work behind two big trucks before we got to Bear Lake.
    WOW! The lake is a beautiful blue. The vista of the lake looks similar to the look of the Sea of Galilee. Quite often we saw signs advertising Raspberry Shakes. When we got to Garden City we stopped at a small woodcabin type eating place right on the lake called The Reserve to buy a shake. We had our sub sandwiches with us that we had purchased back in Salt Lake City so we used their picnic tables and had a picnic lunch overlooking the lake and then had a raspberry shake.

    I think this city has the very unique distinction of having some really wonderful statues. I always enjoy and treasure this type of art because when bronze is used it is made to last for all our future generations to enjoy!

    Driving south from Salt Lake City toward Provo, I saw some of the most wonderful scenery ever! It was extrememly hot (somewhere between 90-100 degrees F), but driving in a convertable made it bearable. Be sure to stop at the local melon merchants for a quick fruit fix!
