October brings with it Halloween events, harvest festivals, football, soccer, and scenic drives in Utah's mountains. Most Utah students have a short school break in October, so it's the

  • Salt Lake City - A Foodie Town

    I traveled to Salt Lake City to speak at the National Federation of Presswomen annual conference. I didn't know much about Salt Lake City outside of the Winter Olympics and the Church of Latter-Day Saints. And to be honest, I didn't really have any food expectations. Salt Lake City is quite a

    Changing leaves are not the only reason to head up Little Cottonwood canyon this fall. In fact there are many reasons: beer, chocolate dipped waffles and how about German yodelers? It's Oktoberfest at Snowbird, through October 13, every Saturday and Sunday and it's worth checking out.
