Today is a state holiday here in our beautiful Utah.
July 24, 1847 was the day the first pioneers drove their covered wagons down
into the Salt Lake Valley.
So we celebrate by marching in parades, eating too much at barbecues and picnics,
shoo the mosquitoes away at large and small firework displays, and
getting together with family and friends.
Kind of sounds like the 4th of July doesn't it?
