Sundance 2008! Whoo-hoo!

I took a little trip to Utah over the weekend to take in the sights in lovely Park City, Utah. A brief power-outage in the middle of the Sub Pop showcase stopped the show, the cause of which is still undetermined (maybe Robert Redford wanted to green the festival through mandated energy efficiency?).

The highlight, besides the showcase, was a quick swim in a 10,000 year old crater. The crater, a 20 minute drive from Park City and 40 minutes from Salt Lake City, is a great, relaxing retreat amidst a busy tour, and probably one of the most amazing multi-sensory experiences I've ever had.

The crater looks like a rock version of Pantheon in Rome (left), a big dome with a hole in the center. From the inside it's a gorgeous calcified crater with azure clear water naturally heated to 90 degrees all year round by geothermal energy. Yup--a natural hot spring. Here are some more Flickr shots.

Mmmmmmm.
