RED BUTTE BOTANIC GARDENS – PARK CITY UTAH

Hubby and I went to Park City, Utah again last month. We went to Red Butte Botanic Gardens, which is a nice place to see the fall colors. It seemed dryer than the last time we were in Utah, but it was still pretty.

this could be in the hills around Los Angeles!

I think this is a Golden Eagle! Note the yellow beak and legs.

ANTARCTIC JOURNAL – REALLY GOOD MOVIE

Just watched a really good Korean movie from 2005 called Antarctic Journal. It wasn’t a fast-paced action-packed movie, but it kept my interest for two whole hours! It’s about a Korean expedition of 6 men who are trying to reach the Point of Inaccessibility (POI) in Antarctica. It’s a psychological drama, and we see how the men react differently to the stresses of the environment and all of that. Very good scenery.
