Day 19: Utah (Part 2)

Day 19 (6/19/14): Salt Lake City, UT

Justin wanted to give me a tour of his hometown. Our first stop was a place he’s been telling me about and craving for years: Glaus Bakery as he knows it but technically Glaus French Pastry Shoppe/Beau Brummel Bakery, a tiny little bakery tucked back between a tire shop and an office building. Justin was salivating as he ordered his favorite desserts: white cake with raspberry filling and chocolate cake with pineapple filling and chocolate rum icing.

We then drove around the Sugar House neighborhood, one of Salt Lake City’s oldest neighborhoods with well-maintained, quaint cottage-like and craftsman-style homes.  Loved the architecture of these homes with their turrets and sloping roofs! If I lived in Salt Lake City, it would have to be in this neighborhood! However, the home prices are rather steep.

Next, we had dinner at Ichiban Sushi. The restaurant has an enchanting setting inside an old church with stained-glass windows and wood ceilings.

After dinner, we ventured over to the Gilgal Sculpture Garden, a public city park filled with intriguing stone sculptures linked to Mormonism and created by LDS businessman Thomas Battersby Child, Jr. While we didn’t visit the garden for religious reasons, it was still fascinating to see the lovingly crafted sculptures.

From the sculpture garden, we drove through downtown Salt Lake City and ended up at Memory Grove Park where we ate the last piece of cake we had saved from Glaus Bakery.

We’re the Bennetts, Justin & Briana, and it’s time for a change! We've left our jobs and everything else behind to start fresh somewhere else. They say it's all about "location, location, location," and what better way to figure out the best location for us than to explore the entire country searching for it? We’ll be driving across the continent with a truck and travel trailer on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime! Tag along with us and our two dogs, Meaty and Saucy, as we explore North America searching for our next destination!

When we’ve RVed in Moab, UT, we’ve stayed at the Spanish Trail RV Park on the outskirts of town.  It's a little far from Arches & Canyonlands National Parks, but it's one of the few (if not only) RV parks in the area with grass (at least that we've been able to find). The road noise was much worse than we remembered from the last time we were there a few years ago, but our furbaby likes the grass.  Plus there's nice trees and a great backdrop, so it'll do.  Where do you like to stay in the Moab area? We hit the road again back in November! First stop on our cross-country RV road trip: Moab, UT to visit one of our favorite National Parks - Arches! We've been to Arches NP several times before, but it seems like there's always more to see there (#amiright?). Which National Park do you keep going back to? Before we start posting all the photos from our recent cross-country RV trip, it's high time we finally share the #podcast we were featured on with @thervadventure! Link in bio.

So happy to have 💥@next.destination.unknown💥 on today’s podcast!👊🏼
