The "white barn" at McPolin Farm in Park City, Utah, is a familiar landmark to anyone who lives in the Park City area, has visited Park City, or has even browsed some of the 'visit Park City' guides available. For locals, "the farm" is an integral part of why we live in Park City - the property was bought in 1990 by the tax payers of Park City to secure open space, wetlands, and to provide an area for recreational activities, including cross-country skiing in the winter and access to multi-use trails when the snow is gone. The open space and the opportunities for recreation is what makes Park City so special to those of us who live here, and to the people who visit, and the farm is symbolic of what is loved about this part of Utah.
Yesterday was a cloudy, wet spring day - not good for much but a nice walk walk with the dogs. So, my husband and I loaded up our dogs and drove to The Farm; needless to say, I had my camera with me, and I took the opportunities to get a few images of my dogs enjoying a cool, damp day. Being Goldendoodles, they are all-weather dogs, and a few sprinkles and a stiff breeze didn't deter them!
It was a great walk for all of us, and nice change from our neighborhood streets! I look forward to visiting the barn again when it has a large American flag on the front for Memorial Day.
