Awesome Scenery

We kept stopping to take photos. Fantastic weather and skies. Everywhere you look is beauty. The fall colors were just fabulous. Glowing reds and salmons.

We were staying in Park City and a couple at the bar had just returned from Mirror Lake in the Wasatch National Forest. They raved about it. It was about an hour drive there, but the drive is the best part! You'll lose cell service, but that didn't bother us a bit. Absolutely beautiful views, camping and picnic areas, and... More

Had a day to spare and thought I would head out and see some sights close to Salt Lake City. Boy, am I glad that I did. Definitely not disappointed. I could have just kept going and going.

If there is a place to take a motorcycle ride through a more majestic and peaceful setting, I don't know where it would be. The scenery is spectacular, the vibe is serene, and it seems that the spectacular views change every few minutes. Just when you think you've seen the most amazing thing, another amazing thing pops into view. Advice:... More

We travelled through this on the way from Thayne to Craters of the Moon National Park and boy was it worth the trouble. Awesome Scenery all the way and bags of wildlife including Deer, Elk, Marmot, Storks and Turkey Vultures. If you are in the area don't miss out, drive it!

There are some great trails all through the forest. There's also several ski resorts operating that have various activities year round. Some very nice hiking for easy to intermediate skill levels.

North 40 Escapes - great place for snowmobile and dog sled rentals. 30 min outside Park City worth the drive. Large meadow to practice in then they take you up in the Uninta mountains. Expert guides help out 1st timers.
