About Griggs, Brandon

Brandon Griggs has been a staff writer at the Salt Lake Tribune since 1994. During that time he has written about everything from the NBA Finals to cornfield mazes to the Sundance Film Festival to Donny Osmond. In his spare time he travels the back roads of Utah in search of unspoiled hiking trails, great pie, bizarre rock formations, and photo ops beside cartoony animal sculptures.
