Best sandwiches: The Kelly at Gros Ventre (grow vant) roast beef, Vermont cheddar, on marble rye with horseradish and spicy mustard.

Best raspberry milkshake: Le Beau’s at Bear Lake

Best ethnic fare: Mazza (middle eastern) in salt lake. (The Himalayan kitchen wasn’t bad but their medium is spicy in our book)

Best steak and s’mores and band: rehearsal dinner, Spring creek ranch

Best Pool: amangani, preferably all to ourselves at night under a full moon or at daybreak with my sweet niece Lucy

Bluest Waters: Bear Lake (Utah/Idaho)

Best Hike: hard to say…Jenny lake inspiration point to cascade canyon, maybe although ski lake hike from Wilson good and hike from our bnb along the rushing river

Best drive: again hard to say 191-89 out along Teton range or gros ventre road east of Kelly or 89 between Logan and garden city Utah
