Marcia told me of a place that we should try for breakfast. It is very hard to give up our routine, but in the interest of staying out of a rut, we ventured out to some place new. Marcia has been to Utah many times, as her son lives in Park City, and we didn't think she would steer us wrong. So, we headed up I-80 to Summit Park, which is between Park City and the Salt Lake Valley, and right off the exit found the No Worries Café. It is a very tiny place, but they know how to get you in, serve you quickly, and turn the tables over fast. It was a very different menu than our usual place and we enjoyed the change of taste. Thanks Marcia, you picked a winner!
After our enjoyable repast we headed back down Parley's Canyon to East Canyon and back into the North Eastern mountains of the Wasatch. We heard the colors were changing and the fall show was just beginning. Isn't the picture above breath taking? The mountains of Utah rarely have a crown of clouds, but both days this weekend the peaks were dappled with small white bits of fluff. Saturday we had mostly cloudy skies in the valley, but on Sunday it was sunny and the back country skies were clear blue. The mountains foliage is full of varied shades of green, red and orange, with yellows and golds just beginning to peek through. It was a spectacular day for a drive. There was a decided chill in the air and we stayed in the warm car instead of taking a hike as there was just too much to do at home. In the next two weeks the colors should be at their peak and we'll make sure to do some hiking and driving into the mountain glory.
This week two lovely treats arrived in my mailbox. Elizabeth spent untold hours, actually months and months, working on the Knit Bloggers Cookbook. She did this all as a labor of love to share with everyone who sent recipes for the book. What a wonderful gift! We have already picked a couple of dishes we want to try this week. The other treat was from La. Not only did she send a years supply of chocolate (which is
hoarded hidden away) and some lovely knitting note cards, but this pink grrly, grrl mug. My morning coffee never tasted so good!
