LGRAB: Summer Games - New Territory: Explore a new part of town by bike
I'm in the final stretch of the Summer Games. So tonight I decided to take Adelaide and head over to the Salt Lake City Cemetery for the "Explore a new part of town by bike" task.
As a kid, cemeteries used to creep me out. But as I've gotten older, I find them to be really beautiful. This cemetery is no exception. It sits on top of a hill looking down on Salt Lake City. What's more, this cemetery is purely Utah.
Just your average polygamist tombstone...
I had some reservations about going to the cemetery. And when I say "reservations," I mean "hills." I admit it, I'm a hill wimp. And the cemetery is located in the hilly Avenues neighborhood of SLC. So I knew getting there, and even riding around the cemetery, would be full of, let's say challenges. (In my defense, Salt Lake City has an average altitude of 4,327 feet. That makes my hills feel even higher and air even thinner. See? Wimp.)
But you know, the great thing about hills is that if you go up one, you get to down it. Makes for a great ride home on a summer night.
