Over the last ten years, there has been significant research outlining the benefits of gratitude. The studies have traced that practicing gratitude is known to beneficially impact the emotional, social, personality, career, and health areas of our lives. Especially under the stress of the current pandemic, I have found practicing gratitude important and grounding. In my gratitude journal last week, I wrote about being grateful for living the Park City. More specifically, I wrote about friends and the community that encourage me to enjoy everything the area has to offer. Celebrating a friend’s fortieth birthday by climbing Mount Timpanogos is just a recent example. The video below shares the wonder and awe that hiking Timp inspires and a glimpse into my gratitude… notwithstanding getting stung by a yellow-jacket and my allergic reaction (perhaps the subject of another letter).

Hike to see the Fall Colors

Autumn is here and Park City’s colors are beautiful, a great fall activity is to take a hike to see the fall colors. One of the best hikes to see colorful panoramic views is Iron Mountain. The hike is moderately steep but once you reach the top the views of Park City are incredible. Experience the colors of fall on this 2.35 mile hike, this is an excellent way to get active and embrace one of Park City’s many hiking trails. The trail is shaded by aspens and well worth the steep incline, once you reach the top of the trail there is a bench that overlooks the surrounding mountain landscapes as well as the town below.
