Salt Lake & Seattle

14 Sep

I can’t believe this trip was barely a week ago, it feels like months!

In salt lake our dear friend treated us to a visit to Salt Lake High School East, where the great films High School Musical, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3 were filmed.  Not enough High School Musicals for you?  High School Musical.

We had a yummy dinner at Ruth’s Diner way atop the mountains.  We ate outside and it was actually cold!  A very nice change from sweating at meals al fresco in Dallas.
Our friend lives just a couple blocks away from Temple Square so we got to tour the grounds and visitors center.  What a gorgeous place!  We even got to poke our heads into the Conference Center and catch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsing for their televised performance.

Next up was Seattle, at long last!  Lots of amazing waterfront photo ops in that town.  We had lunch at a drag bar in an area called Capitol Hill before heading to the water front.

I was super fascinated with this Shamu style beer tap.

Another pay phone, the Pacific Northwest loooves their payphones, y’all.

Monday night brought dinner at a restaurant called Salty’s that was right on the water.  The sunset there was absolutely stunning to watch.The sky was totally on fire y’all.  Figuratively, not literally like here in Texas.
We looked for Niles and Frasier at the Space Needle but they were nowhere to be found.  Sadddzzz.
You just can’t go wrong with a giant stuffed… um.  Does anyone know what this thing is??  Bear?  Beaver?  Otter?

On a completely unrelated note, if you want to look cute and donate to Texas wildfire relief, go here and buy a shirt.  I ordered the Tougher than a $2 Steak shirt in white.

      They are so cute! Choosing was the most difficult decision I’ve made all week.

    I am really jealous that you went to see the HSM school! I’m such a dork. I’m also jealous you went to Seattle. I really want to visit/move there!
