Salt Lake City has treated me well
 

In a few days' time, I will be heading down to southern Utah and I couldn't be more excited for the next adventure. I've been in salt lake city for a bit now and I actually have really enjoyed my time here. A lot of people might think this town is "trash" but I think it's alright. It's not amazing but it's not too bad either. There is plenty to do in the area and I love exploring what is around me. Not only that but they have the nicest climbing gym I have ever been to. It has climbing, a huge workout area, lead climbing, bouldering, showers, a sauna (in the women's and men's bathroom), a dog area in the back, a climbing store, and of course a cafe on the third floor. It's about as bougie as it can get and I love it. For a little, over three weeks I have been doing everything under the sun in this amazing gym. 

Every day I'm here which may seem like a lot but I also paid for the membership which was a bit pricey since you also have to pay the Initiation fee. Overall it was around $140. Now thinking about that cost over the past three weeks or so and coming here almost every single day (I think I've only missed 4 days so far) it makes the membership worth it. Every day I'm using wifi, working out, showering, and of course using the sauna which has been a wonder for my muscles. 

 

Along with this amazing gym, I also had the chance to dog sit two adorable pups and while I was there Lylah got a break from the van life and got to run outside every single day and play with them and I got to use a wired connection, charge EVERY SINGLE THING I can and do laundry without having to pay $10 - $20 depending on how expensive the place is. And of course, the other upside is cleaning out the entire van and getting to have the ac set to a wonderful 70 degrees while sleeping on a memory foam mattress. 

When I'm not at the gym, working, or dog/house sitting I've been hiking, going to brunch or a new brewery, and just enjoying the time. I've always wanted to spend more time in Salt Lake City so I'm glad I am getting to spend more time out here and really get to enjoy what's around me. 

And yes I have seen the homeless populations around and have been taking safety precautions when I'm out and about. I never go out for too long in the dark and I always make sure to have my cell phone and a knife just in case. so far no one has bothered me and I'm not too worried about those around in the area. They all seem to just want to be left alone and not bothered so I do just that. All in all, I think it's alright and if I did decide to come back I now know what it's like here.
