July is very festive in Sandy UT

celebration Sandy UT

July is a month of strenuous celebration in Utah. Summer heat does not diminish any of it.

Utah threw itself into 4th of July celebrations to celebrate the founding of this Country. Flags everywhere; gatherings in parks, and  at homes; food, lots of food; spectacular displays and beautiful fireworks that went of for hours, complete surround light and sound.

If the 4th of July is a patriotic big event, a mere three weeks later Utah outdoes itself with Pioneer Day (24th July). This is the celebration of the entry of the first Mormon Pioneers into the Valley of the Great Salt Lake, the foundation of the State of Utah (named for the Ute Indians who lived here). Originally called Deseret, the Pioneers were responsible for making the desert "blossom as a rose".

While many residents of Utah can claim original Pioneer Heritage, the State is welcoming to any who might like to make it their home. Residents are peaceful, caring, friendly and supportive. They allowed me to be The Last Great Migration in 2006, when I arrived to make Sandy UT my home. I was able to absorb the intricacies of pronunciation and useage of the local language quickly, although I found interpretation of Road Rules to be a little quirky, and often a bit unpredictable.

Sandy UT places me in the middle of the Salt Lake Valley, with all modern services, and scenery to die for. I have always enjoyed where I have lived: Sandy UT has the makings of being the best.

With two biggies to celebrate just three weeks apart, you might pardon us in Sandy UT if we remain in a perpetual festive mode.

Larry, you must love living and working in Salt Lake City, Utah!  I spend a half a day there traveling through and we were amazed at the lake.  I always love reading your posts.

Christine - always my choice, always to seek the best of where I am. Good thing I plan to live forever (so far so good) as I always have so much to see and do.

Wayne - definitely woth a second visit. Some even choose to make it their home. Come anytime and plan to stay a while.

Barbara - Now TRAX (light rail) even runs to the airport, so people passing through can spend as little as a few hour in becoming immersed in Utah. Blending in is so easy.

Noah - any season Utah has lots to offer. My favorite is the deep snows of winter. The place looks just so tidy.

Ann - spoke to a young lady yesterday in the city. She is from MO and will be back with you after one more winter. In her occupation as missionary at Temple Square, she thinks the whole world visits Utah. Her companion was from Ghana.
