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
