From the Back Cover:

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Beehive State has to offer!
Hike the Mountain with a Voice,” scale Angels Landing, or climb on the mushroom-shaped rocks in Goblin Valley.
Ride the third-oldest rollercoaster in the nation, slide down an actual Olympic
bobsled track, or cruise along Hell’s Backbone Road. Attend a festival Where Good Things Happen to Bad Movies,” where rhubarb is the sweetest thing, or where llamas are the guests of honor.
Whether you are a born-and-raised Utahan or are a recent transplant, author Brandon Griggs will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed right in your own backyard.

About the Author:

Brandon Griggs has been a staff writer at the Salt Lake Tribune since 1994. During that time he has written about everything from the NBA Finals to cornfield mazes to the Sundance Film Festival to Donny Osmond. In his spare time he travels the back roads of Utah in search of unspoiled hiking trails, great pie, bizarre rock formations, and photo ops beside cartoony animal sculptures.
