Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune BYU archaeology students Karley Salinas, left, and Shelley Watts sift through the dirt pulled from the site of the old Tabernacle, completed in 1867, which has been revealed once again beside the current Tabernacle which burned in December of 2010. The Office of Public Archeology at Brigham Young University is meticulously recording what they find as they dig through the original foundation of the building which once stood three stories tall.

Here's the list we made:

- Provo tops nation as best large metro area for ‘successful aging’- Lee Davidson, The Salt Lake Tribune
Utah only state with two cities in the Top 10 — Provo and Salt Lake City.

Here's a list we didn't make:

- America's Coolest Cities - Morgan Brennan, Forbes

Might have something to do with the fact that the Coolest Cities list counts things like number of young professionals and number of restaurants and bars. Still, on a day when you can see the snow on the mountains - when you can see the mountains, that is - it is hard to believe that someone thinks Houston - Houston! - is cooler than Salt Lake City.
