Fish Lake

Fish Lake is one of those places where you can go and find solitude and it doesn't have that overcrowded feeling like you can get with some of the other popular mountain destinations in the state. This lake sits at 8,848' elevation, is 6 miles long and almost 1 mile wide and is the largest natural mountain lake in the whole state.

Hiking and Sun Protection

Summer is right around the corner and warmer temperatures are finally on the horizon! Backpacking season is here šŸ™‚ With the warmer temps also comes more sunshine and Iā€™m looking forward to a good sun kissed glow on my face from a hike in the mountains!! Our bodies and health benefit from the vitamin D the sunshine provides; however, too much sun is equally as harmful to your skin if you are overexposed.

Buckhorn

Even though we were in familiar places where we've been before, it felt different being there this time with our kiddos. Our hiking pace was a little slower, we had more stops for snack breaks, we stopped at practically every river, lake, and puddle we found to throw some rocks, but it was so fun to be there with them making new memories! When we revisit our favorite places with kids it really is like seeing it for the first time again. We love giving our kids as many opportunities as we can to run wild and let their imaginations be free!

THE HIKE

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!
