Just because there is snow on the ground doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the outdoors. Temps may be colder, but as long as you’re prepared to go hiking in the winter you’re in for a treat to see some of your favorite trails become new again covered with fresh snow! Plus you’ll have less crowds and no bugs - which for me is always a win!
We love the Baker Hot Springs in the winter because it feels mystical and magical when you see the steam rising up from the hot water. It makes for the perfect backdrop and contrast to the cloudy sky and snow covered mountains. Plus when it's 30 degrees outside nothing feels better than a hot soak!
Boating, camping, fishing, sandy beaches, and warm waters usually bring visitors to Yuba Lake every year. This year the drought in Utah has been so severe that most of the reservoirs, lakes, and rivers are extremely low and Yuba is no exception. We had heard that this reservoir was only about 10% water capacity so we decided to drive down last weekend to check it out for ourselves and turn it into an adventure.
Hiking has always been something the two of us have loved to do together, and still love to do! It just looks a little different these days. What used to be the two of us hiking 15 miles a day through the desert and rugged terrain has turned into shorter, mini hikes with our babies in tow....but we are so happy that we are still able to get outdoors and hike some of our favorite trails and explore off the beaten path - our favorite way to adventure!
