Last week was a 4-day weekend for my kids. Many of you may know this as “UEA Weekend” if you live in Utah. This year, my daughter and I headed south to Torrey, Utah and Capitol Reef National Park. We stayed at the Torrey Pines Inn Bed and Breakfast, which is one of my listings. It took us 3.5 hours to reach the Torrey Pines Inn. From there, the park was just a few minutes away.
Please take a look at each of the 1-minute videos of our trip and vote for the video you like best here. When you vote, you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing for a Park City dining gift certificate. In the videos, you’ll see Erika, the proprietor of the Torrey Pines Inn and her friendly co-hostess, Schatze. You’ll also see some incredible scenery and hikes. The trip to Torrey, UT is a quick one and highly recommended. Even though the town was full during the 4-day weekend, Whitney and I experienced a sense of solitude on most of the trails.
If you are planning to travel during the fall or winter, call ahead, as much of the town of Torrey shuts down during the shoulder season.

#2 is much better, although additional naritive highlighting why the inn is so special would have made it worth the time. Also, adding one or two tips about what to see in Capital Reef would have been
a nice touch. Both films start out strong and then just dwindle .
I love visiting Southern Utah – it is God’s rock garden!
I like the second video. It is more polished and vibrant. The music is also better with the subject matter.
Video #2. Winner winner, chicken dinner 🙂
I love the second video, it has more visuals of the area and place to stay… super fun music. The photo album at the start of the video makes me want to create memories in Southern Utah with my family. The video length was fine. The healthy snacks comment helped me think… making the trip affordable. (only thing I didn’t care for was the editing chop of the walk over to the car to the healthy snack comment). All and I want to wish for a glumy day so I can drive down now 😉
