Utah Hiking


Utah is so BEAUTIFUL! Nature is so good for the soul. It was so good to get out and be in the mountains. We saw a moose and it's baby too. We were sadly unprepared before making it to Red Pine Lake. The kids froze and both were crying and miserable and we ended up turning back premature. We didn't have them dressed warmed enough.

After I went to Idaho, Riley stayed in Utah a couple days and was able to hike a little more and finished the trail and another with Avery!

Heber, Utah

While in Utah, we spent a couple beautiful days in Heber. We spent the night at “Riverbend.” This magical home/cabin owned by Nancy and John (Riley’s aunt and uncle) located next to the tracks where the river bends. The house is unreal: with movie theater, slides going to different levels, themed rooms, basketball court, and more. They do lots of family reunions here and rent it out- but we’ve been in Japan so it was our families first time staying here and already anxious to go back one day. It was so nice and grateful for the opportunity. We got to stay in the “golf room” with these large windows overlooking everything. Riley said it was like “waking up to your personal imax theater.”

Uncle John cooked up some steaks and samon on the treager grill! We also had Nicole’s homemade flatbread pizza.

All the grandkids!
