Spring break adventures in Utah!

We went to Utah for spring break and spend 4 days, we missed Utah’s beautiful landscapes and hiking to the waterfalls, We went on an adventure every single day. On the first day, we meet up with the hike baby salt lake city to hike to the fifth water hot spring, we hiked over 5 miles It was a hot day, and the spring was either too hot or too cold, Fifth water is located up Diamond Fork canyon. The trailhead begins at the Three Forks parking area. The hike to the springs is approx. 2.5 miles and the climb has a moderate elevation gain. We spend more hours hiking because we had walking toddlers. But the hike is worth it once you get to the springs.to learn more about this hike here is the link with details:http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/utah/natural-waterpark-in-ut/

On the second day, we planned another hike with http://www.hikeitbaby.com  to Stewart Falls. one of our favorite waterfalls in Utah.http://wanderookie.com/blog/2015/04/07/stewart-falls/ The hike was led by Susan Curtis Strayer who is the blogger and author of https://www.mountainmomandtots.com/ helping families to explore outdoors.

Stewart Falls is one of the most scenic, and photogenic, waterfalls in northern Utah. It falls in two tiers and is over 200 feet tall. It is a moderate hike through a beautiful forest on the east side of Mt Timpanogos.

On our way back to salt lake city we made a stop from the highway. This gorgeous waterfall is located in Provo Canyon and you can see it from the highway. I’ve lived in Utah for 4 years not sure why I never saw this waterfall before. Bridal Veil Falls is a 607-foot-tall


This is the view on the other side of the road


This was a surprise waterfall, my daughter was excited to see it from a distance she thought it was Stewart Falls, and she kept saying we went there, Mommy. She wore my shoes and made funny faces before we head back to the city. Read more about bridal veil here:http://provo-canyon-parks.weebly.com/bridal-veil-falls.html

On day three went rock climbing with the co-founder of adventure mamas, read more about them here:https://adventuremamas.org/ it’s an initiative to promote women’s wellness. We did something casual and brought the kids to explore outdoors too, we meet up at storm mountain up by cottonwood canyon, and the kids quickly connected and started climbing while we were waiting, and checking out the area.





we surely found another waterfall Utah is rad!

On day four we went on a mommy and daughter adventure and kind of went with a slow pace, just driving around and taking it all in, we drove up to big cottonwood canyon and hop off to check the hidden falls.




We had the waterfalls to ourselves, but the weather changed within 15 min, from good to bad, it got chilly, and my daughter wanted to go home.

Adventure Day is a children’s picture book that I have written, I was inspired by the hike it baby friends that we have made, it’s about me and my daughter hiking to a waterfall in Wisconsin, with our friends, the trail changed my mind on how I felt about Wisconsin, the trail reminded me of Utah canyon and waterfalls. We loved the Parfrey Glen our favorite hiking trail in Wisconsin.

As we continued with our journey the same day, it dropped down to 32 degrees from 75 degrees, it was gorgeous, the mountains were still covered with snow, and there was a little bit of snow on the trail, it was perfect weather for a hike, and a great day to escape the heat in the valley. Silver Lake is accessible to all and is a great way for children, seniors, and the handicapped to enjoy the outdoors. The lake is located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon. In summer, the lake is a great place for an easy and beautiful hike. During the winter it becomes part of the Solitude Nordic Center system of cross-country skiing trails.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

It was amazing to connect with all these adventure women on our trip, we planned this trip 3 months ahead, and I’m super lucky that I have these women in my life who always open their hearts and let me ruin their schedules. These are the women I look up to in life. Utah will always be close to my heart, I will always answer the nature call when I miss the mountains, I miss the pretty views every day.
