Utah University in SLC

24/Oct/2011: When in Rome do as the Romans do. Let's ride on a bike exploring the city!!


The third day in SLC.
We rent a bike at the hostel then going to the Utah university.
It was 10$ per day. I used to riding a bicycle usually but not a bike...also it wasn't fit for me.

Anyway we just wanted to cycling like local do.
The Utah University is easy to get from our hostel.
The weather is fine,air is fresh,also not much cars on the street especially direction of University is just through residential area....I thought.


Salt Lake City is very nice for travel because you can see the map.
The street is across from west to east,from south to noth,and easy street name like 1,2,3,4…avenue and a,b,c,d...street.
We could figure out where we are right now easily.
But I mistaked the direction from our hostel to University...

I noticed after passed 3 or 4 street because the university must be top of the hill but we were going to flat street.

..oh well still easy to fix. It was too hard going to uphill by bike but very comfortable feeling wind,seeing the town.


I never expected that how huge the university,because I saw the Football studium at first when we arrived there.

Also the TRAX is still coming into the university,there is a hospital also.
We wanted to enter the art museum,we locked our bikes at "bike lock"
(I never saw it before and it was definitely different to Japan which I'm living) and walking to the museum.


Unfortunately it was closed as it was Monday...too bad,we just walked around university library,and went to the store at university.
The store is very nice as they sales original goods.

It seemed they are popular of football,Bascketball, golf,saccer...
I bought a basket ball for my newphew because he playing it at high school.
We just explored around and found the history museum also closed,anyway we could feel an atmosphere of there was so good.


Going back to hostal was comfortable by downhill.
We stopped taking a picture at any beautiful places,also when we saw the Halloween decorations was so nice!

Then one of idea comes me that we should make a a Jack-O-Lantuen for the Halloween as I watched TV program.
They explained well hoe it makes. So we went to buy the pumpkins at Smith's.
