Are you feeling ready?
For weeks, months, Parkites have been out hiking, biking, running, fishing, paddling… And it’s been fantastic. Pandemic aside…not always easy, we’ve had a gorgeous Summer and Fall. And then, it started getting colder. And people started morning the loss of warm weather.
Then we saw it. The snow blowers came out and started to add a layer of white to the ski runs. In this town, that’s pretty much all it takes for people to get excited for winter. Yes, I have friends who begin posting about how many days to the next ski season the moment the runs shut down. But for the rest of us, the ones who enjoy all the seasons, seeing snow is what it takes to get pumped for winter.
But wait. It gets better. Two days after the resorts started making snow, Mother Nature (not to be out done) stepped up to the plate and dumped an inch or two of her own. So now, the tops of the mountains are white, and all seems right with the world.
It’s fresh. It’s crisp. It’s beautiful. And it’s why so many people venture to this part of the world. Skis are getting tuned. Jackets, gloves and hats are coming back out. Equipment is getting updated.
So, once again, Park City says, “we are ready.”
Hope to see you soon.

It’s a Park City tradition. The Scarecrow Festival. The trail by McPolin Farm is now lined with scarecrows created by locals. It’s colorful, whimsical, current, and happy-making.
As part of my hiking routine, I find myself going by McPolin Farm multiple times a week. And right now, that path is populated with people of all ages, taking in what others have constructed. From an astronaut with it’s own space ship, to a tribute to RBG, to an embodiment of our current world challenge, the subjects are varied and the efforts are appreciated.
To stroll through the scarecrows with a backdrop of fall colors is brilliant. It’s whimsical and joyful. And hey, it’s outside, so it feels safe.
Being in Park City at any time is a gift. Being here during the current nuttiness and having all this beauty at our doorstep, plus all of the options for things to do outside is beyond a gift.
Love that the Scarecrow Festival lives on. If you want to get in on the fun, the Scarecrow Festival is happening now and runs thru October 25, 2020.
Cheers to your next visit,
