A July 4th Week in Park City

Another fabulous week in Park City!  

More golf - Monday with our regular Monday golfing buddies, Rheta and Tom, and Thursday with some 'old friends', Marla and Steve, who we managed to capture in town for a brief spell.

More dinners - Sunday we slipped in a nice evening at The Blue Boar in Midway with Rheta and Tom before our golf outing Monday morning.  And - Wednesday we met up with our old buddies from the RV park - Sue and Don - who have moved on from their RV, but are back in town in a rented house for the summer;-)

More hiking - This week we tackled Lambs Canyon, a 4 mile round trip with about a 1700' elevation change.  The effort is well worth it when you reach the saddle and have views down Mill Creek Canyon to the Salt Lake Valley - 

Atop the Lamb's Canyon trail with Ben and Sally - -

- - Gary, too.

THEN - it was time for the 4th of July festivities, which always begin on the 3rd:-)  This makes E VERY happy, as that means at least one extra day of fireworks!  And - there are always concerts at Deer Valley.  This year they started with Martina McBride and the obligatory rain storm -

Umbrellas up for a brief downpour before the concert

July 3rd fireworks at The Canyons;-)

July 4th and the hometown parade on Main Street.  The Grand Marshall - why Ted Ligety, of course -

and subbing for the US Air Force...

Go Ted!

Another concert at Deer Valley.  This one with the Utah Symphony and The Texas Tenors, who were a lot of fun!  (We were guests of our friends the Prothro's - so we had front row seats for this one!)

And then, the 4th of July fireworks at PCMR - - -

But wait - we weren't done yet.  July 5th brought Kenny Rogers to town with the Utah Symphony at Deer Valley.

What a celebratory week!  Some of what we really love about being back in PC for the summer - good friends, good golf, good food, good concerts, good parades, etc. etc. etc:-)!!!

Still having LOTS of FUN - E & G celebrating
