New England does not have the market cornered on pretty autumns. In fact, Utah might be the most beautiful place in the country come fall (and all seasons, let’s be honest). Looking for a place to see the leaves change? Check out one of these fall foliage road trips in Utah this year in your new Ford F-150:
to Ogden Valley for some breathtaking views of the changing trees. While out
that way, stay a couple nights at Snowbasin Resort, where you can try some
delicious beer and barbecue—and free jazz on Sundays.
Mount Nebo Loop
see beautiful yellow and orange trees reflected in still water, try out this
Zion National Park
Yellowstone. Zion National Park may be the country’s most amazing national park
with beautiful views of red rocks and jagged cliffs. While the landscape is sparser
in terms of trees, it still does play host to changing leaves — and the
tourists have all left for the summer.
The Alpine Loop
is by far Utah’s most famous fall foliage loop. Start at American Fork Canyon
and head to Provo Canyon on this 20-mile loop.
Contact us here at L&L Motor to schedule your Ford’s seasonal service appointment before the holidays arrive.

Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Looking to spend the day with your loved one in a unique way? Vernal residents should try out one of these unique Valentine’s Day getaways in Utah:
Salt Lake City
The capital city of Utah is the epicenter of culture and fine dining. Take your significant other to explore a museum, take in the natural beauty of Red Butte Garden, and enjoy a nice dinner somewhere in Temple Square.
If you and your loved one enjoy “roughin’ it” together, rent a cabin out in Arches National Park in Moab. The views are incredible, and you can quench your thirst for adventure with a day of cross-country skiing at La Sal Mountain before relaxing in your cozy romantic cabin with a hot tub and bottle of champagne.
Are you and your significant other avid skiers? The best place to spend the long Valentine’s Day weekend is in Park City, which is home to three world-class ski resorts, several fine-dining establishments, the Blue Sky Ranch for scenic horseback rides, and a delicious whiskey tasting at the High West Distillery.

Whether it’s the winter blues or just holiday indulgence, it can be difficult to stay as fit in the colder months as it can be in the summer. Luckily, we have a few ideas as to how to stay active this holiday season:
Get into snow sports
Living in Vernal gives us great access to awesome winter sports, like skiing, snowboarding, skating, and snowshoeing. Try one out this winter season.
Go for a walk
Winter walks can be beautiful and quite cozy when you bundle up appropriately. They’re also a great way to maintain heart health and they don’t require too much stamina. Just make sure the walkways aren’t icy before heading out.
Play active games
f you have kids at home, try playing hide-and-seek indoors or, better yet, get out the old Wii and play your favorite Wii sports.
Take a class
If working out at the gym by yourself just isn’t enticing to you, sign up for a class, like yoga or cycling. Better yet, skip the gym and sign up for a beginner’s dancing or karate class.
Build a snowman or go sledding
Outdoor activities don’t have to be strenuous. Just getting out of the house to make a snowman or go sledding with friends and family will brighten your spirits and boost your endorphins.
For more pastimes to enjoy during the holidays, contact us at L&L Motor. We’ll be happy to share more of our favorites.
The United States has been celebrating Labor Day since the late 1800s. It was started as a way to recognize all the work American workers have done to create the country we know today. While most of us might spend the day relaxing and having one last summer barbecue, here are a few other ways to celebrate Labor Day.
- Shop local. Small, local businesses are the backbone of America. During the month of September (or beyond), try to do as much of your shopping at local business as you can. You might find your new favorite store or restaurant.
- Spread love. While many of us get the day off, some people don’t. Bake some goodies and take them to your local fire or police station to show how much you appreciate their hard work.
- Take a tour. Find a local farm or factory and schedule a tour to see how the products you buy make it to your home.
- Have fun. There are quite a few festivals over Labor Day weekend here in the Utah Valley. Find one you and your family would enjoy and give it a try.
At L&L Motor Co., we hope everyone has a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend.
