11 Things That Will Always Make Utahns Think Of Home
Whether you’ve lived in Utah a few years, or your entire life, when you travel outside the state there are some things that will always remind you of home. Here are 11 of them.
1. Majestic Mountains
There's nothing like flying into the Salt Lake Valley and seeing the Wasatch mountains.
2. The Sundance Film Festival
Sundance gets international coverage, and when you start seeing those news stories full of photos of Park City, you might feel a little homesick.
3. Casseroles Topped With Cornflakes
When you see gooey casseroles topped with cornflakes, you immediately think of Funeral Potatoes - the ultimate Utah comfort food.
4. Stunning Red Rock Formations
Our Red Rock country is unmistakable. Sure, a few other states have landscapes that are like this...but Utah's red rock is truly remarkable.
5. Endless Vistas
Find a scenic overlook in Utah, and you'll be able to see for miles and miles.
6. Hearing Someone Say "Oh My Heck"
Utahns have a special way of swearing without really saying those bad words. Heck, Frick, gosh and dang...they'll all make you feel nostalgic for Utah's quirkiness.
7. Slow Left Lane Drivers
If you happen to run across a car driving exactly the speed limit in the left hand lane, you'll certainly think of Utah. It's all too common here (along with failure to use turn signals).
8. Utah Jazz
Ah...the Utah Jazz. You either love them or hate them. Or maybe you're just tired of hearing about Gordon Hayward.
9. Warren Miller Movies
Watching a Warren Miller movie makes you wish you were skiing in Utah. Sure, you can't ski like that. But you like to think you could...
10. Mormon Missionaries
No matter where you are in the world, you could run into Mormon Missionaries. Those white shirts and ties are unmistakable.
11. Fry Sauce
Nothing will make you miss Utah more than the lack of fry sauce. Or, if you're a fry sauce hater, you'll rejoice every time you get fries and the kid at the drive thru window doesn't ask you if you want it.
What makes you think of Utah?
