10 for Summer '07: #8 Park City, Utah
Photo by Flickr user ekillian.
So the photo above is the Park City I visited - no, not black and white, silly - snowy, brittle, cold. I was there covering the Sundance Film Festival for work in 2006, during which time the average temperature was 18 degrees. Yeah, shows how much my blood has thinned since Chicago, when 18 degree weather would have been cause for a lighter jacket.
In any case, the town is incredibly beautiful, and continues my possibly odd desire to see ski towns in summer. Mammoth? I've been there countless times to snowboard, but never when it wasn't under 15 feet of snow. I feel the same way about Park City, with it's charming downtown. I'd also like to see it away from the madness of Sundance, with its full shuttle buses and triple-parked limos on tiny, winding streets.
