Oakley Cattle Drive: A Western Tradition

What makes the American west the “West” as the world knows it? Is it the great stretches of blue skies, sweeping and diverse landscapes, or the history of cowboys and native americans? I think it’s a combination of all of those things. There is plenty of space for both new and old traditions. One tradition that is undeniably a truly “western” experience is a cattle drive, a unique part of our heritage and history in Utah. Summit County is lucky to be the home of traditional cattle drives for working ranches. I had the chance to join the Leavitt family for their annual cattle drive, and it was an adventure not to be forgotten!

Park City Film Series to Host Women’s Panel in Conjunction with RBG Screening

The Park City Film Series will be showing RBG the weekend of June 8-10. RBG was a hit at Sundance, especially with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg attending the festival. The film is an inspiring look at her life, covering her marriage, her health, her family and, of course, her astonishing legal career. To further discuss this legacy, we're hosting a panel after Sunday's screening moderated by KPCW's Leslie Thatcher, with women who have equally incredible stories. We wanted this panel to represent different points of Justice Ginsburg's career, so we have an ACLU attorney, a law school professor, and a Utah Supreme Court Justice.

Summer Preview // Outdoor Markets Opening in June

Mark Twain once said “nothing helps scenery like bacon and eggs.” As a bit of a food enthusiast myself, I’d have to say that I agree with Mr. Twain on this, however I might swap the bacon for fresh locally grown sweet corn, and warm fresh-baked artisan bread. Lucky for us, the outdoor markets throughout Park City make it possible to have it all! You can have your “bacon and eggs” while enjoying a view like none other.
