Mountains behind street

Salt Lake City, Utah

Earlier this year, I visited Salt Lake City with my team mates from work. We rented two houses and spent a few days working side by side — which is a rare occasion when you work with people from all over the world. This post is a hodgepodge of film, digital and phone photos, along with a few of the details I can remember.

The mountains looked tantalisingly close from our living room window. You can just about see where the snow ends and the sky begins in the photo above. I wanted to get up there for a hike but it was a bit far from the house based on how much time we had.

Residential areas of Salt Lake City were full of houses with chairs sat on wooden porches.

On evening, me and a team mate sat in the hot tub with a jug of peanut M&M’s and some cans of Provo Girl Pilsner. Keeping it classy. The M&M’s were in a jug because they were taken from a 1kg bag. 1kg!!! I wish we could buy bags this large from supermarkets at home but the fact we can’t probably saves me from myself.

Lots of little things went wrong on the journey out and looking back, this trip was ill fated from the beginning. I remember messaging Scott at the airport and saying it was like the universe was trying to keep me at home. And I did end up leaving a few days early in the end. But that’s another story for another time.
