Left too late to take a decent walk, but ended up doing 4.5 miles with a respectable aerobic workout, huffing up into the foothills. On the way up I passed a street designation in the concrete (common up in the Avenues of Salt Lake) that someone had decided to decorate with Pyracantha berries - I thought it was charming:
My son called me when I was overlooking the valley, and asked if I wanted to go do dinner and a movie, so I snapped a few quick pix:The Great Salt Lake from the northern foothillsThe Salt Lake City CenterFoothills with Sunflowers
It was kind of a hazy day so the shots aren't the best, plus all I had with me was my phone-cam, but they give a flavor of what I saw this afternoon.
My some drove up into the avenues to pick me up, and we went to dinner at a Thai restaurant - I gave this one a "B-" - and then went and saw "9", which I had seen last week, but enjoyed it again because he hadn't seen it. His assessment was similar to mine - he liked the effects, but came away feeling unsatisfied with the story as a whole. However, we saw some previews for some awesome-looking films that are on the must-see list.
