Best Trip Down Memory Lane

It's time for a proud mama moment.  My daughter made the “Best of Utah 2021” in the City Weekly of Salt Lake. This are the best things about Utah and are full of authentically Utah things, some 374 and counting.  My daughter's instagram,"rachels_slc_history" was voted to be included in this special recognition. 

The category for her recognition is 'The Best Trip Down Memory Lane'.  They state this about her writings, photos, and what she shares: "From posts on visits from Hawaiian royalty in 1875 to the racist ways of the Salt Lake Hot Springs Sanitarium at 52 W. 300 South in 1893, Rachel Quist tackles both Utah's light-hearted and heartbreaking moments. In addition to sharing vintage cards and catalog.”   

Rachel is an archeologist by trade and has always been interested in history. She is good at finding and sharing the things she digs up - like the bizarre, obscure, and forgotten things the rest of us never knew.
