Last Saturday, we finally left the hotel after 2 entire days of being inside. I almost didn’t realize it since the lobby and halls were so bright and airy, but the sad truth was that I’d been indoors for way too long. Andrea, Lisa and I took a ride up to Park City where the Sundance Film Festival is held to poke around, have lunch and take wayyyyy too many pictures.
As you can probably tell, the weather was amazing and 30 degrees felt really warm compared to what we’ve been experiencing here. I got to wear my black and grey faux fur coat instead of my puffy coat that’s been on heavy rotation.
I loved the store fronts and architecture here. Each spot was different than the next and full of character and charming details. We ran into a photographer and ended up playing with his fancy lenses, talking photography and cameras for longer than we had anticipated, but it was great fun! Andrea and I both walked away wishing we had t he lens he was using.
On our way to lunch, we ran into a guy filming a documentary about Sundance called Journey to Sundance. Fun fact: the film’s producer Julian Starks, is also in a Quicken commercial that’s floating around right now. We finished up the afternoon with a very later lunch at the High West Distillery right off the mountain. It was the perfect, cozy spot to relax after a crazy long week.
We didn’t get a chance to see any movies, but that didn’t really bother me. The town was cute, I could have just milled around moving from cafe to cafe eating and drinking until it was bedtime. We had a great day and I hope to make it back another day for some skiing and movie watching. Has anyone else been?
