Hop on Trax to get to my corner..


This weeks theme for the corner view is transportation. In Salt Lake City, you usually get around in your own car, a bus, or the Trax. Basically Trax is a two-line light rail system running from downtown Salt Lake City (where I live) to approx 19 miles south to a city called Sandy (where my parents live). Trax comes in very handy for us "down-towners" who don't want to take our cars out and find a place to park. Or in my husband's and my case, we like to long board. So we long board somewhere and take Trax back close to our apartment. This is also how my husband gets to and from his school.

Usually I'm a stickler for only posting one picture for the corner view (don't ask me why.. I love seeing all of your pictures) but today I couldn't resist two. These are my husband's and my feet riding on Trax. I figure our feet are modes of transportation too right? Don't tell the transit authority.. technically it's against the rules to put our feet up.

Looks like you have a good public transportation system in Salt Lake City. Here in Salalah there is none.

Francesca said...

It's nice to have the public transport option, especially when you can put your feet up:)!

jane said...

malo said...

I love the contrast between the two photos. The first action and the second rest. Great reading also.

Lisa said...

Is it safe to assume that the chucks are the hubby's feet and the polka-dots are yours?? (he, he)

Chris and Logan said...

I am so glad you found me!! It looks like you're doing great! I am excited to catch up, thanks to the lovely blog world!

Cute pic.... I love the feet. I love feet pictures! (Did that sound super weird?) I also can't believe you hyper-linked all those things at the end of your post. You have WAY more patience than me!!

tiffany said...

Love this pic. I like that you can see the temple peeking through the top and the clock framing the side.

Did you know that they are building a trax line all the way out to our house? now you and Bob can hop on board and come to visit.

caitlin said...

Katie, there is no way I would have the patience for that! I just copied and pasted it from Jane's page!

And Tiffany, I'll assume you're Alana :)

Cate said...

Anonymous said...

Thanks for sharing.

trinsch said...

apparently i'm judgmental, cause i never really thought salt lake city would have much public transportation going on. but it has. i envy you! and i love your flats! and the chucks too, off course - a classic. and i love that you and your hubby's shoes are matching.

kim said...

my kids have long boards - fun, fun! wow, transportation is great there - we could use that between here and atlanta!

la lune dans le ciel said...

Jane's blog allows me to discover other places and especially new persons. I like movement in your photo! Thanks for your visit and see you soon !!

Samantha S said...

The Trax looks good, and both of your feet do too. Happy travels.

Ani said...

long board? like skate board?

wish we had better public transit here. ours is awful!

caitlin said...

Yes, just like a skate board, but longer. Long like a surf board almost. They're easier to ride. So fun!

Erin said...

I wish we had a better public transit system.. very cute polka dotted shoes and I love my converse, even though my feet do not love them!

I won't say a word. :)
