Enjoy Thanksgiving And The Coming Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving. We wish you all the best this holiday season.

The weather should be very nice throughout Utah tomorrow and through the weekend. It will be perfect for skiing but also for hiking, biking, Jeeping and many other outdoor activities.

Remember, the Christmas lights will come on Friday evening at Temple Square and many other spots around Utah.

Now's a perfect time to hike in Capitol Reef National Park, and the park just released this news release, saying the Hickman Bridge trail has reopened after being closed because of a rock slide. Here's an excerpt:

Because of the size of the rockfall, additional precautions were taken before the trailhead could be reopened. The trailhead has been delineated and the trail has been realigned around the debris pile... A portion of a retaining wall just beyond the rockfall was washed out during this seasons flooding in September. Please use caution when hiking through this area. Masonry work will be performed in the spring as warmer temperatures allow. has this interesting article with with the headline below. After the headline we give excerpts.

Looking for Something to Do Over the Thanksgiving Break?

For those looking to spend a fun, memorable holiday in our great state, the Utah Office of Tourism has some suggestions on top places to visit over the long holiday weekend ─ some traditional, some a little more off the beaten path.

Starting November 30, the City of Ogden will kick off the Christmas season with the sixth annual Santa Fun Run (5K) at 4:30 p.m. Participants dress up as Santa and receive milk and cookies following the race. Following the race, head over to the annual Christmas Village and Electric Light Parade. The parade is filled with elaborate floats, sensational themes and performers. Fireworks will fill the sky following the parade to announce the opening of the Christmas Village ─ one of Utah's largest holiday celebrations.

For that once-in-a-lifetime experience, spend a day (or more) at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary ─ the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary located in the breathtaking Angel Canyon. Best Friends offers daily tours, volunteer opportunities, and you may even find a furry friend to adopt.
