Jordan River Parkway Trail – 4800 S to 3900 S – Taylorsville

Jordan River Parkway Trail - 4800 S to 3900 S - Taylorsville, UtahToday I continue my Jordan River Parkway walking tour at 4800 South in Taylorsville, Utah by heading north along the river and walking to my day’s turnaround point at 3900 S in South Salt Lake. Murray, Utah is south across the street from here.

It’s January 19th, the temperature has been maxing out at freezing until this week of sun where it’s been approaching 40 degrees. It’s an enjoyable time to walk because there are few people and the air is refreshingly chilled with a relaxing sense of quiet.

Today the studio is run by her oldest daughter Tina Comadena, assisted by another daughter, Joni Nelson, and by Tina’s only daughter Nikila Comadena Lopez.
