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

Epic PROVO Bucket list

Utah County has been on our bucket list for years! We alway pass by but we have never made it a destination to stay and explore. I'm SO glad we finally made it down to explore. First off, we have to say that Provo exceeded all expectations. The small town charm, creativity, and endless number of places to eat and things to do, it would take weeks to fit it all in. We have compiled a list with the BEST OF THE BEST that Utah County has to offer. Now, remember, we only stayed for a weekend, and you can

Bridal Veil Falls & River Walk

This is an awesome 15 minute paved trail, perfect for bikes, strollers, and skateboards and ends with a 607-foot-tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon. If you just want to see Bridal Veil Falls, you have a couple options. You can pull right up and get photos from your vehicle at the look out point. You can park right next to the falls, walk across the bridge and you're there! Or you can start at the first parking lot (our recommendation) and walk 15 minutes along the paved trail that runs along the raging river. Once

5 things to add to your Sundance SUMMER Bucket List

Sundance in the Summer is so beautiful! We have only been here in the fall for the Haunted Lift ride & Zip Line. So it was nice to go up without coats and jackets and really just enjoy the beautiful mountains and scenery. We enjoyed three awesome activities while spending the day at Sundance. All were kid friendly, but would also make for an incredible date idea too. #1 RIDING THE SKI LIFT First up, we took the lift to the tippy top of the mountain. The sun was warm and the breeze was cool, we couldn't have picked a

Rafting the Provo River

Rafting the Provo river has been on our Utah bucket list for years. This year it went on our summer 2020 bucket list so I was thrilled to finally get to check it off! We took a guided rafting tour from High Country Adventure. This was a great option since we had an almost 3 year old. Since the water was so slow we were ok to bring him, but check before you book to see how fast the river is. I got a lot of questions about guided vs self guided. Pro's, if you have littles, or you are

Echo Reservior

It was our first time visiting Echo Reservoir. Such a beautiful place! It was cold and breezy when we got there but warmed up quickly. The water was surprisingly warm but was perfect for cooling off in as the day got hotter and hotter. We took our paddle boards from Lifetime and inner tubes from Big O. The kids played king of the hill non stop. The beach was awesome because you can drive right up to your spot. But by the time we left that afternoon, there were many cars parked on the trail that we drove on. I

Manti & Palisade

After our little staycation in Spring City, we headed south to spend the day in Manti and visit Palisade State Park. First up, we ran up temple hill. They kids actually made it to the top! After rolling back down temple hill, we hit up Palisade State Park. We set up camp under the shade and next to this little dock. The kids had a blast jumping off and loved laying out to warm up since the water was nice and cold. We have LOVED these inner tubes that my dad found at Big O Tire. There were a lot
