Memorial Day | Bear Lake and Wind Cave

5.29.2014
I really wanted to go to Colorado for Memorial Day this year, but because my Aunt Shari was coming, and we had to speak in church, we opted to stay home. We still wanted to do something fun on Memorial Day though, so we decided to do a small driving trip!

We drove up to Bear Lake through Huntsville, the scenic route if you will. It was a gorgeous drive. Once we got to Garden City, and could see the Lake I was blown away! I couldn't believe what a beautiful lake it was. SO BLUE! It was a particularly beautiful day too, so that really added to the whole ambiance, and my newfound love of this pretty lake.

We stopped for some lunch and then walked around the marina, looking at all of the boats.



^^The boats! I so wish that we were boat people. When Jordan told me that he never wants to have a boat, a little tiny piece of my heart broke (like a really small piece, I'll probably get over it, or maybe he'll change his mind...).^^



After Bear Lake, we wanted to do a hike. Jordan picked a really cool hike for us to do that day, just outside of Logan. It's called Wind Cave, and I think it's a pretty popular hike for the area. It was pretty strenuous for my untrained hiking body, and we just so happened to start the hike at probably the hottest time of day, but once we got to the cave, I was so glad we did it! It was pretty amazing.



Jordan lugged Reagan up the mountain in this great hiking backpack that my mom bought for us at a garage sale. We love it, and so does Reagan. It was the first time we have used it, but we're hoping to get a lot of use out of it this summer.



The cave was so neat. It is definitely a cave, but it has holes on both ends, so it's kind of like a huge arch. We stayed at the cave for a little bit, had some tasty snacks, and let Reagan stretch out her legs before we headed back down.



We had dinner in Logan at Fredrico's after the hike and then went to a park for a little bit, so Reagan could crawl around before heading back home. The drive home was great. We were pretty shocked at how close we live to Logan. Overall, it was a great Memorial Day, and an even better/super busy weekend.

  4. I love the Wind Caves! Next time you're in town, you really need to check out Herm's (which is right as you come out of the canyon down a side street called "Canyon Road" (appropriately).

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! I will definitely have to try that out. Especially because we're so close to Logan now.
