    I'd like to add to Tommy's comments, not about SLC, but Utah per se.

    Utah has the greatest unknown sights and sites in the nation. If you could count spectacular natural beauty by the number of times your jaw drops, Utah leads the nation. The National Parks in Utah, and the topography in general, is a great secret. Planes fly over the greatest assemblage of beauty in the SW, which is saying something, and few know the grandeur they're missing far below, and fewer visit Utah to discover it than almost anywhere. That's both a shame and a plus, for the ignorance about Utah keeps it from becoming as jammed as, say, Yosemite. Their great loss!

    If any state in the East had ONE of Utah's dozens of mind-boggling sights, we would never hear the end of it, its image would be known as well as the Statue of Liberty. But because they're in Utah, the world is ignorant.
