You must have met a Fargo transplant. People from Utah do not sound like that.

Before I ever traveled to Utah, I thought of mountains, the Great Salt Lake, the Bonneville Salt Flats (and the speed records set there), and the Osmonds. OK, that's borderline Mormon stuff but still separate.

When I first arrived in Salt Lake City, one of the things that impressed me was the street layout. The whole 408 South 900 East type addresses greatly appeals to me. I love how logical it is and how after I learned how it worked, I could go to almost any address without using a map. I loved it.

The street numbering system throws most people for a loop. Consequently, most are highly critical of it. But it's nothing more than a simple grid system, and is almost identical in concept to longitude and latitude. Once it clicks with you, it's like . Duh! What could be easier. Apparently you're a quicker learn than the average tourist.

I never realized it was harder than NYC? NOT.
Seemed straightforward to me , from PA.

Camp Williams and Salt Lake City and Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park.

Camp Williams is a NG camp for Special Forces, and I have been there on duty. Bryce Canyon and Zion are nice National Parks, and I have driven by there. I did not get to stop, but I would like to see them again some day. St George seemed to be a nice place too, the area seemed to be scenic.
