7 things to do with kids in LAVA HOT SPRINGS

We went to Lava for the first time earlier this year HERE. It was snowing and cold. We had no kids, and had a blast! But we knew we had to bring the kids back because we knew they would love it as much as we did. There is definitely more to do in the summer! Here is our list of kid friendly activities to add to your Lava Hot Springs Bucket list. #1 Soak in the natural hot springs Located along the Portneuf river, about 100 ft down river from the big falls. There is a bit of a

Camper re-haul with Beddy's

We teamed up with Beddy's to give our cute little camper Mildred a face lift! Lets start our with some before and afters shall we! Start scrolling... This was such a fun project. You can see how much we spent and what we did in THIS post. After the re-haul, I was done. I staged the camper with some stuff from the house and off we went to make memories in Mildred. Then one day, I was scrolling the Beddy's sale and saw the most darling perfect in every way pillow sets! I knew they would be the perfect addition

Red Pine Lake - Little Cottonwood Canyon

This hike was a beautiful mistake. We planned to hike Gloria Falls which is an easy 2 mile RT hike to a beautiful waterfall. We missed the turn and ended up on the trail to Red Pine. A few hikers we passed said it was worth it so we continued on up the trail, we had no idea how far it was but they were right, it was worth it! It's about a 7 mile hike, we walked around the lake so that added an extra mile. I would say it's a moderate hike, fairly easy if you can handle

Gloria Falls - Little Cottonwood Canyon

Gloria Falls was a new addition to my summer bucketlist and last week seemed as good a time as any to check it off. It's only 2 miles round trip, but it has a steady climb, totally doable for littles if you take your time. There is one catch, after the third bridge, head left. There are no signs and the path isn't clear. But you will follow the river up about 5 minutes to reach the falls. We missed the turn and our 2 mile hike turned into an 8.5 mile hike up to Red Pine Lake instead. No

Tibble Fork with Rexchanger App

Y'all! We are so excited to share this beautiful mountain top reservoir today, AND the coolest app that made it possible. You can rent a home on airbnb, rent a RV on rvshare, and now... you can rent recreation gear on the hottest new app called Rexchanger. Here's the thing, we have a garage full of fun toys & gear, BUT we also have a mini van and 7 people in our family. That doesn't leave a lot of room for taking toys with us on adventures. We either have to plan to go with friends that have a truck

ARCHES National Park - WITH KIDS - MOAB

Can you believe I own the Salt Project and have never explored Arches! True story. We drove through on our way from Texas to Utah probably 9 years ago, and thats it. We had our dog so we couldn't hike, so we just held our dog and walked out to the Delicate Arch look out (5 minute walk). So boring. I know. Heres the thing. I didn't start this blog because I have been everywhere and was an expert. Quite the opposite actually. I grew up in a home where going to McDonalds was a big deal and I can

7 Magic Mountain - Las Vegas Nevada

Our first stop on our girls trip to Tahiti Village in Las Vegas, Nevada was stopping to hike the Crack in St. George. After arriving in Vegas, our next item was visiting the 7 Magic Mountains. The Crack is very narrow, but SO fun to hike. It only takes about 15 minutes to get up and back. Check out a full hiking guide HERE. And no road trip is complete without stopping in Beaver for a photo in the rocking chair. 7 Magic Mountains is such a fun spot in Vegas. Its easy to get to, just follow the road

Porcupine Reservoir Kokanee Salmon Run - The best Spot

Although we have featured the Salmon Run several times here on The Salt Project, this was my families first time going to see them. Taking babies on adventures can be overwhelming. Also fieltrippin' alone without the support of a spouse or friend can feel daunting. And so, the thought of tackling this particular adventure in past years just sounded too overwhleming to me. Well this year was MY YEAR! It's been on my bucketlist for so many years. I was so excited to finally go for a visit. After reading the blog posts here on Salt Project, it looked like

Poison Creek Bike Trail Park City

We love the Poison Creek Trail in Park City. Its a great bike/board trail. The last couple times we have walked parts of it, but this time around we happened to have some boards in the van so they kids were thrilled to be able to explore farther. The trail ends (or starts if you wish) at the McPolin Farm in Park City. We started at the end of Main Street and followed the trail under several tunnels, then we drove to the farm and found out that the trail connected! The Farm has parking just across the street, go

Silver Lake Trail at Brighton

Silver Lake has been on my list for so long, but we just never get to each year before the snow comes. This year we made it a priority and I'm so glad we did. We went on a Sunday, which I never recommend doing by the way. We usually try to get out during the week to avoid crowds and now I remember why. But, even though it was a weekend and the most incredibly beautiful day, it was still worth it, and the crowds really weren't that bad. We had ages 2-64 and this really was the perfect
