I'm glad we got a chance to see Park City in the off season, uncovered by snow and ice, and hoards of people. An old mining town, there's still plenty of gold and silver to be had at this popular resort. Shopping, restaurants, Victorian buildings, more restaurants, and more shopping.
Something to catch your eye in every window, and this time of year a different kind of footwear than snow boots!
Park City is a cozy homey relaxed place. Great for beating the summer heat. Utah is still blazing hot this year on the last weekend of August.
I like the way the town celebrates its history, and the vintage touches everywhere, like this old porch settee out front of the Park City Clothing Company.
I'm not much for western wear, but was charmed by this flashy gal dressed to the nines outside the shop.
But of course there's something for everybody here.
We got in a pleasant stroll down the tidy main street, with its old buildings and old time flavor.
The old brick City Hall is undergoing renovations.
The Pizza and Noodle joint is so popular it overflows into the street. . . .
A terrific vantage point from which to see all the comings and goings and beautiful people.
We didn't actually take in the Museum. Only the shop. You find the most interesting things in museum shops. Don't you think?
The end of summer is a wonderful time to get around, especially in the mountains.
Even the season has its patina on like old leather and tea stained linen. It's still August but the leaves are turning on the high hills. We are into the yellowed pages of summer. Each one telling its own narrative of joyful days in the sun.
Our last stop in town before we head to camp is the deli and a "Picnic to Go".
Maybe we'll be back in winter. . . .
For now it's time to move on. There's still some summer action out there to be harnessed. Time to peddle on and squeeze out the last sweet drops of summer fun.
Hope it's still happening out there for you too!
Great week to you!
