At this point in our trip we made a detour North to Salt Lake City to collect Lynda.  We stayed in the suburbs and had a day's rest before venturing into the centre - on Sunday morning - hoping to find somewhere to eat.  We parked the car and walked to the Mormon Temple, a rather modest edifice compared to the one near East  Grinstead.  The centre was quiet and we searched in vain for an inviting-looking eatery.  Back at the car park we noticed a large building called the Salt Lake Brewing Company, apparently open.  Once inside we found it bustling with a mostly young crowd but room enough for us to sit down and have a very nice brunch.

The local microbrewery - an oasis of bustle in an otherwise almost deserted city centre

We've driven almost 4,000 miles in the past four weeks and now it's time to rearrange the car and make room for Lynda.  Our route from Seattle to Salt Lake City is shown in blue on the map below;  the magenta route leads onward to San Francisco.  National Parks and National Monuments we have visited are shown in bright green; others which remain on the 'to be visited' list are in pale green.  (This entry is written with full hindsight!)
