It’s been almost 3 weeks since I got back from my most recent visit to the States; those dang locals would probably say that I’ve taken my “sweet time”‘ in writing this particular entry; and they’d probably be right!

My visit to Utah took place between the 14th-21st of June 2011; I already miss the beautiful sight of waking up to the mountains, long grassy hills and watching the crystaline lakes go by as we travelled up and down the highways from place to place.

It’s a very odd thing, hearing the sound of singing birds as you walk out of an airport terminal; but that was my first impression of Utah, and in reflection I think it is a very appropriate one too given the amount of wildlife that I saw during my time in the Salt Lake City area and surrounding cities like Provo and Saratoga Springs. Deer, Skunk, a multitude of different birds and the occasional mink farm which stank like an old people’s retirement home.

Out of all the States I’ve visited, it’s definitely the most chilled out and relaxed, and it has the scenic Walmart I’ve ever seen!
