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.

Favorite Backpacking Meals

Whether you are planning a backpacking trip for the first time or are a seasoned hiker getting ready for another long thru-hike, the food you take plays a huge role in how successful your trip will be. Food will be your fuel and good nutrition can be the difference between an amazing adventure in the back country or a miserable experience. Spring is around the corner and so are a lot of our backpacking trips we have coming up šŸ™‚ so we wanted to share a few of our favorite meals we eat on the trails!

YUBA

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.
