Here you can find places like the family history library and the museum of history and art. There you can see all about the history and fame of Salt Lake City.<br />We went to the museum and learned a lot of new things about Salt Lake City and the history of it. We didn’t realize that Salt Lake City had such historical value.<br />
06/06/11<br />Kennecott Utah Copper’s Bingham Canyon Mine <br />We took a tour through the mine and saw how much of an interesting place it was. We could not believe how big it was! It was an amazing thing to look at.<br />The world’s largest man made excavation. Located 28 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, the mine is 2 ¾ miles across and ¾ mile deep. It is so big that it can be seen from outer space.<br />
06/07/11<br />The Great Salt Lake<br />We took many pictures and had a picnic right next to the water. We loved the beautiful sight seeing at this lake but the water was very cold!<br />The largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River. It is approximately 75 miles long and about 35 miles wide. Located in several wide flat basins, a slight rise in water level expands the surface area of the lake considerably. The first scientific measurements were taken in 1849 and since then the lake level has varied by 20 feet, shifting the shoreline in some places as much as 15 miles.<br />
06/08/11<br />Miller Motorsports Park<br />It is a state of the art road racing facility located just 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. It is considered the finest facility of its type in North America.<br />We stayed there all day and watched one of the famous races. It was extremely loud and we had a blast.<br />
06/09/11<br />Deseret Peak Via Mill Fork Trail<br />It is a 7 mile hike out and back. The difficulty is strenuous. This hike ascends the 11,031 feet summit of Deseret Peak, in the Stansbury Mountains west of Salt lake City. <br />We did the all day hike and were very tired and needed a lot of rest to be able to get up the next day.<br />
06/10/11<br />Grand America Hotel<br />Inspired by the world's grand hotels of the past, The Grand America Hotel has the allure of Old World craftsmanship, charm and hospitality, with every modern convenience at your fingertips.<br />We have to leave tomorrow at 3:00 A.M. in the morning so today we are staying at the hotel and resting from our amazing stay at Salt Lake City.<br />
