Salt Lake City is the capitol of Utah and It is very stretched out, but wherever you are, you look up to see those snow caped mountains. The temperature in the valley where the city is located was 90 degrees for us. I guess the snow won't last much longer. We enjoyed the Salt Lake KOA as it was not far from the downtown area and you could ride the tram system into town.

Okay, we bet you have never seen a burger joint chain, that looks anything like this one... It was called Crown Burger. The one we visited had about 10 people behind the counter and they needed every one of them. The Crown Burger, it turned out, was pastrami on top of a Cheeseburger. The burger cost $5.99 but It was crazy good...

We had lunch the next day at an Italian restaurant. We had soup and a salad and Mahi Mahi. It was very good. Now for those who think all we do is eat, we usually do one big meal out and a light dinner or lunch. So we are not blipping up yet.... 

You wouldn't believe all the salt that is around the Great Salt Lake.  Morton Salt has several mining operations going on there. It's no wonder; that's all there is, salt.  The Ruby Mountains, shown in the last photos, were in Nevada about 63 miles East of  Winnemucca, NV on I80, our next destination. We plan on spending 2 nights there, and then on to Dutch Flats CA about 30 miles from Lake Tahoe. We have seen Tahoe before, so we are only spending 2 nights before moving on to Petaluma, CA and the wine country. We look forward to a longer visit in CA to see what she has to offer.
