Salt Lake City: Day 1

I arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah this morning at about 10:30am local time and thus far, every moment has been a blast!  There is so much to talk about… where do I begin?

Being a southern California girl, I’m not generally used to cold weather.  Luckily, I came prepared with my sweaters, jackets, gloves, and scarfs.  It certainly looks like it will be a cold few days.  I’ve read weather reports that it is expected to snow tonight and tomorrow.

I went to the Family History library for the very first time today and it is probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.  Floor after floor of books, microfilm, and happy people to assist you.  It is definitely overwhelming the first time, but totally worth it.  I didn’t stay long today because I’m still recovering from the food poisoning I had two days ago, but I plan on going back before I leave.

I stopped and had lunch at the Nauvoo Cafe – most delicious roast beef sandwich I’ve ever eaten.  I wish I had more of an appetite because I would have eaten a lot more.

I had dinner with a bunch of fun geneabloggers at P.F. Changs – delicious food and even better conversation.

But now… it is time for me to get ready for bed.  I’ll be up bright and early tomorrow morning to set up the WikiTree booth in the exhibit hall.  If you are here at RootsTech, please make sure to see Chris Whitten’s class on WikiTree tomorrow morning.

Also, don’t forget that tomorrow is the Genealogy Idol Competition and yours truly will be competing.
