We just got back from a trip to Salt Lake City, UT. It is one of the cleanest cities I have ever seen. How have they managed to train everyone who lives there to not throw trash on the ground? How have they managed to not have graffiti? They are building everywhere in the downtown area. Must be lots of new businesses moving in.
Of course we were there to do genealogical work. This was the week of DH's CGS group research tour to SLC. It was the first time I have accompanied him. Last time I had been to SLC, was 10 years ago. I immediately noticed that the FHL was full of way more computers than they had last time. Family Search is in the process of digitizing all the books. Before you know it, there will be nothing but computer stations.
When not ensconced at a table in the FHL, I enjoyed walking around the downtown area. There is a relatively new indoor/outdoor mall called City Creek. It was flanked by a Nordstroms and a Macys. Most of the stores were in the high end category including a Tiffany's and a Porsche Design store. We had incredible warm spring weather the whole week so being outside was wonderful. Besides the creek that ran through the mall, there were fountains that put on a musical fountain show every hour.
