Photos of the Week

 This is where we camped last weekend. The Uinta Mountains are so breathtaking this time of year.

It was a short whirlwind trip but oh so worth it! 

We almost didn't find a camping spot, but thanks to our son reminding us to pray and our fortitude  when it got dark, we ended up in a beautiful spot at 10:30pm.  It was totally dark so we didn't know where we were, but were pleasantly surprised when we woke up the next day next to a pretty stream and pond in the greenest, most pristine mountains we could ask for!

We hiked around the famous Mirror Lake and dodged melting snow the whole time.  The coolness felt wonderful!

On the way back down from the mountains we even discovered the most amazing waterfalls that we didn't even know existed.  Provo River Falls is definitely worth the visit!

Our lessons learned on this trip: 
A) Plan better ahead of time
B) Don't give up when things don't go according to plan
and 
C) The Uintas are awesome and we should go there a lot more!

What do you learn from your camping trips?  Or are you a seasoned camper and have everything down already?  We're still trying to get our camping groove down, but it's fun getting there!

  2. What a beautiful place! I'm so glad you found it even if it was at 10:30 pm! Camping is always an adventure. We haven't gone all together since way before Mason was born, but there were always things I wanted to write down and remember for the next time. I'll have to go back and look at old blog posts to remind myself what they were. I seem to remember something about bringing extra food in case you burn what you were supposed to eat for dinner! :)

    1. haha! Good idea with the extra food! We didn't even have time for a campfire so I didn't have to worry about burning anything this time :)
