An end of summer trip. On our way to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park. First stop: Salt Lake City. The sky is really blue, the summer is super hot and the people are so nice. We spent our day at Temple Square and then at the Natural History Museum.
Today, the Salt Lake temple is dwarfed by high-rise buildings all around it, but from this angle, you can almost imagine how it looked when it towered over the city. It’s not hard to catch a couple posing in front of the temple when you sketch. There seems to be a new couple standing at the fountain every few minutes.
The find of the day was the Museum of Natural History. It was interesting to see this display of us with all our cousins, and to note that we weren’t the biggest-brained (or the cutest-looking) of the all, just the one that lucked out.
This quick little sketch is of my husband and kids skipping stones on the Great Salt Lake. We’re at Antelope Island in the north part of the lake where the salt content is a whopping 25%. It makes everyone seem like a real pro at stone skipping.
More sketches, from Yellowstone and Grand Teton coming soon.
