Day 46 – Day off in SLC

10/15/2009  Three becomes four.  Anders is back. He rejoined us at Leo’s apartment around midnight. First and foremost, Leo and Aubrey have been such generous hosts. They have truly opened their home to us.  On top of that, Leo picked Anders up from the airport, and then drove out to his parents home to transfer Anders’ bike and luggage back to the apartment, while the four of us were able to enjoy a day off in the city.  We are so grateful and bewildered by their extreme kindness. What wonderful friends!

Just as glorious was the weather for our day off. The sun was shining and the sky was a perfect blue. In the morning we all tromped over to a nearby café to get revved for the day. From there we walked over to the movie theatre, located in a big outdoor shopping complex.  The girls went to see Whip It, while “Anders meandered” (ha!).  Whip It was great. After the movie we all went our separate ways—Anders and Sara had a reunion date of exploring the sights, Tracy went climbing at the Front, and Caroline went for a long run.

After meeting back up at Leo and Aubrey’s, we showered and then headed out for dinner at Squatter’s Pub and Brewery. Again, it was great meal. On the route home we stopped in for a couple of drinks at the much talked about Beerhive Pub. They had a great selection, and we all enjoyed sitting back and reacquainting ourselves with the dynamics of a four person brew crew.  Alarmingly, we were out until 11:15pm- party animals! It was swift to sleep. The next day brought the beginning of the long haul across the Nevada flats. (I am using the term flats in a very optimistic fashion…we’ve been in the mountains for a while now!)
