This past weekend Bryan and I went and toured Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, the deepest open-pit mine in the world. It is the world's largest man-made excavation and can be seen from outer space. In 1966 it became a National Historic Landmark. I had no idea what it really was, but it blew my mind when we got to the top and I saw it.
This is a tire that is one one of the huge trucks. HUGE.
After we toured the mine, Bryan and I went and walked around downtown Salt Lake City. I took this picture from the car as we left the mine.
There is a fantastic shopping area in Temple Square that has everything a girl could want to drool over--J.Crew, Macy's, Nordstrom, West Elm, Restoration Hardware, the list goes on and on. We had a late-night dinner at the Market Street Grill, where I had the Fresh Hawaiian Ahi Tuna and a glass of crisp Pinot Grigio.
I told Bryan that it was the perfect way to spend a Saturday and exactly what I had been wanting to do since we moved. It is always fun exploring a new place and it has only just begun!
