Things to do in Sandy

  • Utah Lake State Park Utah Lake State Park Sandy, Utah
    Utah Lake State Park is about five miles from Provo, Utah, and contains the Utah Lake which is the biggest freshwater lake in the state and one of the biggest in the entire west. With 24 miles of shoreline, the 96,600 acres lake is magnificent to see, and even more enjoyable to be on or in. The Utah Lake was originally called Lake Timpanogos and is one of the remnants of the prehistoric Lake Bonneville that once covered most of the state. The lake drains via the Jordan River, and is fed by the Provo River. The drainage water goes into the biggest remnant of the Bonneville, the Great Salt Lake. The lake covers most of the Utah Valley which is in the north central part of the state, and although it is huge, it is only 14 feet deep at its deepest point. There are a few hot springs by the lake which are very popular with the people that live around the area, near Sarasota Springs and Lincoln Beach. An island is located in the lake, called Bird Island and is a favorite spot for fishermen seeking channel catfish, white bass and walleye. The park is one of the state's most favorite, and in 2000 was the 4th most visited area in the state. Some of the best activities that are favored here include; fishing, boating, of all kinds and shapes, picnics, swimming and camping; with 54 RV sites and 40 tent sites. There are showers, bathrooms, running water and electricity available, with a 14 day limit. Besides the water and electricity at each site, there is a fire pit and BBQ grill, shade trees and table. The showers are located outside of the restroom areas and can be shared, since they are outside. The list of fish include; white and black bass, walleye, channel catfish and varies kinds of panfish. In 1776, an exploring party called Dominiguez - Escalante came across the Spanish Fork Canyon, and as they climbed near the beginning, they went up over a small hill and viewed the huge lake laying in the valley below. Bernardo Y Pacheo told his king that it was the most pleasant, beautiful and fertile in all of New Spain. Up until the 19th century, there isn't any information about the lake until fur traders and mountain men arrived. Some of these hardy individuals included Jim Bridger, Peter Skeen Ogden, Daniel T. Potts, Osborne Russell and Jedediah Strong Smith. Smith wrote in a letter in 1827, talked about the beautiful lake and in 1844 and 45, John C. Fremont came to the area. The park itself, is 308 acres, and was built by the CCC in 1933.

  • Bingham Canyon Mine
    This mine is an open pit mining operation that extracts a huge amount of porphyry copper deposit in the Oquirrh Mountains of Utah. The copper is managed by the Kennecott Utah Copper Corp, with the mine, refinery and smelter under their direction. It has been producing copper since 1906 and is considered to be the biggest man made excavation in the world. It became a National Historic Landmark in 1966. The minerals were found in Bingham Canyon in 1850, although digging it out didn't start until 1863 and the vast potential was realized. The mining was very hard in the beginning and when the railroad came in 1873, greater activity and settlements began to happen. These first mines were small but in 1898, it was planned for bigger areas to be mined and developed. It was then that Samuel Newhouse and Thomas Weir started the Boston Consolidated Mining Company, with the intention of making the mining operation much bigger. It really started to develop in 1903, when Daniel C. Jackling and Enos A. Wall started the Utah Copper Company and it built a pilot mill at Copperton, which had grown up at the beginning of the canyon. It began its mining operations in 1906, and the great success they had revolutionized the copper mining business. In 1910, Boston Consolidated and Utah Copper merged, with Kennecott Copper Corp having a big investment in Utah Copper, and took over the entire operation in 1936. The mines at Bingham Canyon have produced 17 million tons of copper, 190 million ounces of silver, 23 million ounces of gold and 850 million pounds of molybdenum.

  • Hogle ZooHogle Zoo Sandy, Utah
    The Hogle Zoo is located in Salt Lake City, just across from the This Is The Place Park, at the beginning of the Emigration Canyon. It is a family operation that was started by the Hogle's in 1931 and still is run by the family. It first opened in Liberty Park and had an elephant, monkeys, deer, birds and mammals. The real history starts in 1911, when the Liberty Park showed some monkeys and then a deer. The zoo concept seemed to be a good idea and was promoted. In 1912, the parks department starts the zoo with $153 and purchases a pair of white faced ring-tail monkeys, a pair of Golden pheasants, a pair of blue peafowl, pair of Demoiselle cranes, pair of white storks, a pair of squirrels, a pair of Mandarin ducks and a pair of foxes. In 1913, it opened the Happy Family Building which held most of the birds that had grown to include pigeons, quail, peacocks, parakeets, ostrich and turkey. It also held 100 rabbits and numerous guinea fowl. It is open only from mid May until mid December and is free. In 1916, Princess Alice, an Asian elephant is purchases with donations that local school children raised with penny and nickel donations. There are over 275 animals at this point, with 26 of them being donated. In 1917, a building is constructed to house Alice and the next year, she gives birth to Prince Utah, her fourth baby and it is put in all the local papers. In 1919, Prince Utah dies from complications after his mother rolled over him and papers say that she cries and trumpets him in mourning. In 1931, Alice has caused some problems by continuing to escape and walk the streets with lines of clothes on her back and everyone talks about moving the zoo. Mr. and Mrs. James Hogle donate land at the beginning of the Emigration Canyon and it becomes the zoo's new home.  As the years go by, various calamities and special events occur, in 1943, a young boy kills a deer with an arrow, in 1946, a polar bear named Blizzard is shot and the list goes on. In 1948, a female "liger" is born with a lion father and tiger mother and named Shasta. And in 1953, Princess Alice is euthanized. More additions are built as the amount of animals continues to increase and in 1972, Shasta the liger dies. In 1985, the old cages, originally built in the 1930s are destroyed and new ones built with new exhibits for the endangered snow leopards, primates and great apes. In 1989 visitor total exceed 600,000 annually and the beat goes on. Gorgeous, a 41 year old gorilla has a cataract removed and a lens implant put in by Dr. Allan Crandall, and the female gorilla is more active and seems much happier.

  • Wheeler Historic FarmWheeler Historic Farm Sandy, Utah
    The Wheeler family farm starts in the year 1886, when Sariah Hankinson Pixton married Henry Joseph Wheeler and they moved on to the 75 acre homestead, where Henry ran a good dairy business and Sariah had and raised 6 children. It is a good thing they had six, since the farm work was so extensive in those days, what with milking the cows, making and churning butter, picking up the eggs, cutting and chopping wood for the stoves and fireplaces, trimming lamp wicks, making soap and chopping ice out of the blocks for storage keeping or drinks. It was a great time to be alive and the Wheeler family thrived. But in 1969, the county bought the farm and it was put on the Utah state and National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The farm was originally part of a bicentennial project of the American Revolution, but it became more as they researched the farm, reconstructed and refurbished it over a ten year period. It wasn't an easy project since some of the structures were in bad disrepair or ruins, while others were in marvelous shape and not at all to restore. It is still continuing and probably will be, while it still represents a turn of the century dairy farm and showcases the way families farmed during the latter years of the 1800s. It represents the lifestyles of farming families from 1890 to 1920 and has the best farming methods of that era that was known as the Progressive Era. There are many exhibits and demonstrations that happen here and the public is always excited to see it. It is used as an outdoor classroom, for the people of today, so that we can learn and understand the hardships that many families endured during these times.

It is unfortunate that as of this writing, the Jazz lost to the Nuggets 114-105, but it was a great game for bball fans to watch and enjoy. Their first game against the Sacramento Kings was won which hopefully set up the season for this great team, the score was 95-85.

Keep watching this great team as the season progresses and be sure to catch them when you come to Utah.
