ABSOLUT SALT LAKE CITY

Today I went and snapped some never before seen areas of Salt Lake City. I'm not trying to out do Don's AWESOME photo tour of Salt Lake City, just merely trying to capalize off of it. ;)

Most of these photos were taken in Salt Lake's Capitol Hill neighborhood. :)

Also, please let the photos load.

So, without further ado.....SALT LAKE CITY.

Don't you love livin' in the city?

I believe this is a Bed and Breakfast now.

2004_0602Image0002.jpg

LDS Church Office Building through the leaves. Also gotta love the summer green.

2004_0602Image0003.jpg

Zion Summit East. Its twin is right next to it. Later seen further on in the thread.

2004_0602Image0004.jpg

Looking down Main Street.

2004_0602Image0005.jpg

Some apartments tucked between apartments. How cute.

2004_0602Image0006.jpg

I believe Brigham Young is buried right down this path...creeepy.

2004_0602Image0007.jpg

I climbed up the back of this apartment building; tried to get on the roof but some guy yelled at me and said he was calling the police. So I quickly snapped this photo of downtown.

2004_0602Image0008.jpg

And this photo of apartment buildings on the east side of the area.

2004_0602Image0009.jpg

Then quickly zoomed in toward downtown and left.

2004_0602Image0010.jpg

This was taken at the end of the park, toward State Street.

2004_0602Image0011.jpg

Across from State is probably the nicest area in the whole city. City Creek runs right through the area and is an urban oasis.

Here's the apartments you saw above from the start of the park.

2004_0602Image0012.jpg

Ah.....western urbania.

2004_0602Image0013.jpg

The always nice LDS Temple through trees.

2004_0602Image0014.jpg

Part of City Creek, as well as downtown SLC. The ugly Gateway Tower East will totally get a face life, it's gonna kick Salt Lake ass when its done!

2004_0602Image0015.jpg

More if City Creek with downtown through the trees.

2004_0602Image0016.jpg

Part of downtown.

2004_0602Image0017.jpg

Yummy apartments. I get hard just thinkin about 'em!

2004_0602Image0018.jpg

The following photos were taken in a small neighborhood located in a valley between Capitol Hill and the Avenues hillside. It's just a street that connects to Memory Grove and is probably MY favorite neighborhood in the city. City Creek runs right down the center of the area...offering the residents a very nice natural treat.

2004_0602Image0019.jpg

City Creek running toward downtown.

2004_0602Image0020.jpg

HISTORIC homes with the creek running by.

2004_0602Image0022.jpg

More of the creek, as well as apartments in the background.

2004_0602Image0023.jpg

As I said, the above area was in a small valley, well I hiked up the east hill and snapped this photo.

2004_0602Image0024.jpg

On the east side of the hill is the Avenues neighborhood - porbably SLC's most historic area. Here's a typical apartment.

2004_0602Image0025.jpg

A hill takin us toward the eastern end of downtown.

2004_0602Image0026.jpg

This street is rather neat. It's got apartments, but the best part of it is the fact downtown towers behind 'em!

2004_0602Image0027.jpg

Zoomed in. Very nice.

2004_0602Image0028.jpg

Looking north toward the Zion Summit (west and east).

2004_0602Image0029.jpg

Apartments from the start of the thread, but a different view.

2004_0602Image0030.jpg

Finally, the street I was on a few photos back, I about fell off the parking place getting these photos.

2004_0602Image0031.jpg

There. I really hope ya'all liked the tour. I think this is some of my best photos, but who knows. :D

Well thanks for that interesting tidbit Sean. <_<

(lol)

Anyways. SLC has a very suburban feel, with some of the qualities of a bigger city. Very nice. Seems like a good place to raise a family.

Impressive! SLC is looking very scenic in these photos. And that creek just tops it off.

I have to agree that this is the best SLC tour I've seen.
