"Park City is one place that anybody can know intimately and completely without ever visiting. This is another way of saying that the place and everything in it are in the condition of photographs. Whether you view it through the bug-spattered windshield of a moving car, watch it on television, or survey it from the prospect of a surrounding hill - even if you are right in the middle of everything - no difference is noticeable between imagining it, flipping through photographs of it in a poorly lit motel room, or walking among the surrounding hills, subdivisions, and ancient outbuildings that UDOT (the Utah Department of Transportation) refers to as "the corridor". A single glance from almost any balcony of any motel anywhere in the urbanizing West will provide identical information, and even though UDOT bills Park City as the "new bedroom community of the Wasatch front," all that means is that people who sleep and play in Park City work and live elsewhere, and this in turn means that "the corridor" is in reality a detached suburb of Salt Lake City."
