Idaho Vacation Day 6

July 4th - Happy Independence Day.  Today we went rogue and left Idaho.  Mat thought it would be neat for the family to see Salt Lake City, Utah.  It is only 2 hours south of Twin Falls, so we decided what the heck.  We had done everything else we wanted to do in Twin Falls, so we went for it.

Salt Lake was beautiful.  We went to the State Capital building, Temple Square, Olympic Park and Golde Spike National Park.  We put in a very long day, but it was well worth it.  We had a lot of fun.

 Salt Lake Utah was the host of the winter games awhile ago.  They turned the Olympic Park into a fun place for families to do activities during the summer and the winter.

 We watched jumpers practice.  They landed into the pool.

 We stopped to see the actual high school where they filmed the movie "High School Musical".  A lot of the students of this school were in the movie
