In a short stop between meetings, nice local to visit an obtain a fantastic overview of the valley. You can obtain an 360 degrees view. WIth good weather the view is better and you can achive an higher distance.

Not only the ruins looks lovely, but the view all around is amazing and the little town of Orem is also a place to discover . A good 1 hour and half trip.
