I graduated from BYU in 1994 and haven’t been back to Utah since. That is about to change my friends. Later this week we’re loading the family in the car and driving to Utah for a vacation and to visit my brother Russ and his family.
It’s not that I had anything again visiting Utah; I just didn’t have reason to go back. Before I knew it eleven years had passed. But now that I have a brother out there I have a reason to visit and I’m really looking forward to it. The three years I spent in the great state of Utah were among the most fun of my life. I met my charming, intelligent, and beautiful wife there; I started my first rock band there; I made some lifelong friends there. And even though I spent three years as an Aztec at SDSU too (freshman year and two years in grad school) I’ve been a Cougar first in my heart.
So what do you recommend we do while out there? We’re staying in West Pointe (by Layton) for part of the visit. I plan to attend the Saturday session of the SMPT conference at USU. We were going to ski or snowboard one of the days and check out BYU one day too. Anything changed at BYU since ’94? (Ok, I know a lot has changed there.) Anyway, what qualifies as must-see or must-do in Utah these days? Help me out y’all.
