  • “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” -John Muir 

I love that home church has allowed us to slow down our Sunday pace. I love that the slower pace is allowing time for us to be together as a family. I love that so much of that family time is being spent outdoors. I love that time in the mountains is another form of worship. I love that my “mountain home” is so close to my day-to-day home. I love that when I go to the mountains I “lose my mind and find my soul.” #bccutah #silverlakeutah #silverlake #playoutside #beutahful #outsidekidsarehappykids

  • ✨Utah is beautiful!✨🌺
We set aside this time to go inward with meditation, prayer, and to explore as much nature as possible. It’s been such an amazing summer with this super human Kai Kai! 🌟✨🌈

  • JULY 21, 2020 - EXCALIBUR!

Stars:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Distance: 6 miles round-trip (+ another .6 miles or so round-trip for Excalibur)
Elevation gain: 2395+ feet
Time it took us: 2 hours 30 min up / 1 hour 45 min down
Dogs allowed: yes, but would not recommend taking them up to Excalibur!
Kid-friendly: no way!!!

Navigating to the sword in the stone was a little tricky and pretty scary, but incredible once we finally found it! We've never peaked a mountain like that before and the views were spectacular up there. The sword is between Silver Lake and Silver Glance Lake but at the top of a peak to the SE of Silver Glance Lake (see map). You access the trail to the sword from Silver Glance Lake by heading SE towards the nearest rocky mountain peak you'll see there. It's maybe a .3 mile (or so) hike from Silver Glance Lake up to the sword but it's a pretty treacherous climb and if you are afraid of heights, you shouldn't go up there. There's no way our dog could have made it up there, so we took her with us as far as she could go safely and then we tied her to a tree and finished the final and most treacherous parts by ourselves. At the top is a metal box that had a logbook, a pen, a Book of Mormon (in Japanese or something), and a tampon 😂 inside. Mike enjoyed reading a few of the entries while I took in the views. We left our names in the logbook and then carefully made our way back down. Finding Excalibur was seriously one of the coolest things we've ever done. Loved it! See stories for more.

  • JULY 21, 2020 - SILVER LAKE & SILVER GLANCE LAKE

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Distance: 6 miles round-trip (+ a little more if you hike to Excalibur)
Elevation gain: 2395 feet
Time it took us: 2 hours 30 min up / 1 hour 45 min down
Dogs allowed: yes
Kid-friendly: up to Silver Lake yes, beyond that no

We enjoyed this hike SO much! We loved the diversity on this trail. You get bridges, streams, waterfalls, spectacular views, moose (at least we did), and you hit two lakes on this hike. We had to start this hike SUPER early in the morning (5:30 am) because we always have to be home by 11 am to take Bryson to the gym. We knew this hike would take us a while so we wanted to be sure we gave ourselves plenty of time and we couldn't have timed it more perfectly. It took us a total of 5 hours from start to finish. It was pitch black when we started the hike but quickly got lighter as the sun started rising. Mountain sunrises are the best! 🌄 The 2-mile hike up to Silver Lake wasn't all that difficult and our dog loved it. The final 1 mile from Silver Lake up to Silver Glance Lake is brutally steep, but the prettiest part of the trail. Silver Glance Lake was GLASS but not all that impressive otherwise. Had both lakes and the trail up to ourselves. We had heard rumors about "Excalibur," a sword in stone on a nearby mountain peak and decided we wanted to try to find it. See the next post and the "Excalibur" story for more details on that.

  • What a great weekend! @nicholassumpter86 made the drive from Colorado to spend the weekend. We jammed out to music and enjoyed the historical sites on our way up to Idaho. We got to visit, have an armored combat practice, and meet some of their new members. Then the next day we took a drive up the canyon to Silver Lake and as we parked Nick mentioned that he had never seen a moose. No joke, less than 5 minutes into our hike we saw a bull and cow moose just chillin’ in the marshes. As we continued our hike we suddenly heard a low grunt as another bull moose stood up from where it was bedded down in the shade just a short distance from the hiking path. It was so amazing! Then in the evening we got dressed up and went to The Prohibition for dinner and drinks.
Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend with such a great guy, good friends and so many new memories.

  • Wintertime this beautiful place, located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, is buried beneath the snow.
❄️🌨☃️
Summertime it’s a perfect hiking destination with the boardwalk that offers picnic tables and benches and stretches one mile around the Silver Lake Recreation Area.
😎☀️🏃🏼‍♀️🌲
Great place for some easy hiking!
