Crazy Daisy Tour Day 33: Salt Lake City, UT to Rawlins, WY
Salt Lake City has a unique history, setting and vibe. As we drive to the Utah State Capital Campus we see temporary no parking notices that have been set up to keep the road clear for the "Tour of Utah" time trials to be held this evening. We see the teams getting their practice laps in.
At the capital, we are greeted by Beverly, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who shows us the old supreme court, the house chamber and senate chamber. The art work in the rotunda is exquisite (above).
We cross the street to the Travel Council Building (below) which was constructed in 1865-66 and moved to its present location in 1963. We pick up a map and some tourist info and head west towards Rawlins.
