A scenic byway is a specially designated road that travels through an area of natural or cultural beauty. You can drive on through your life as fast as you can, more focused on the destination than the journey. Or you can choose to be present and revel in the journey that is life. I choose the latter. Eyes wide open and marveling at the beauty that is everywhere all the time - this is My Scenic Byway.

Red Butte Garden, Salt Lake City
There is a beautiful botanical garden and arboretum in Salt Lake City - Red Butte Garden. 100 acres of gardens, walking paths and natural areas with hiking trails. It is a non-profit organization and part of the University of Utah. You can rent out various places in the garden for events and ceremonies, like weddings. In September 2010 we had our wedding ceremony in the Fragrance Garden and our wedding reception in the Orangerie, both within Red Butte Garden. The site was perfect. We and all of our guests loved it. If you are looking for a place to hold a wedding in the SLC area, I highly recommend it. The location is beautiful and the employees who organize the events are top notch.
Below are a few photos from our wedding to try to give you some images of the garden.
If you are visiting Salt Lake, or live in the area, it is worth a visit. The place is open year round
