Kent and I are in the last few hours of our two-day stay at The Montage Resort in Deer Valley, near Park City, Utah. Kent is attending a business conference here, and I decided to come along and write for fun and catch up on some reading in the peace and quiet of the guest room. Other than the hour-long yoga class I attended this morning followed by 25 minutes of cycling in the "wellness room", I've mostly sat curled up by fireplaces sipping hot chocolate.
This little library tucked away in the grand hall kept me cozy and comfortable for a few hours. So comfortable, in fact, that I fell asleep while a father and his son played billiard games just outside the doorway.
I did spend about an hour yesterday getting over the shock of in-room dining prices here. (Click the photo to view larger.)
It's a good thing I brought my own $20 worth of snacks/meals (there were more in the fridge)...
...because the fancy snacks stocked in the room would have set me back $122.
($4 for that bag of chips. Really?!)
When I sat down to write a letter, I had to chuckle that the pen tips were dipped in wax--to prevent them from drying out, I suppose. Who thinks of these things?!
It's been nice to be surrounded by comfort for a couple days, but I'm ready to return to the loud, messy, vibrant place I call home.
