Ogden Hot Springs - Adventurin'

I thought the Ogden Hot Pots closed years ago and everything ripped down. A google search says that "someone suggested these are closed". A couple weeks ago I decided to go exploring to see for myself. I was shocked to find people soaking and all of the Hot Pots still there! There was no sign that they were closed or that it was private property, so I brought my kids to explore. We had the place to ourselves other than one fisherman. The water was great and all the pools are different temps. I will say, the first day I

Beus Pond | Adventurin'

It was Free Fishing Day last week so we decided to try a new pond and bust out our dusty fishing poles that we use each year on this day. My kids have never been to Beus, and it's just a hidden gem. The pond is right next to the parking lot but everything is covered in tall trees and shrubs so it feels very secluded. The trail around the pond is very short and paved. There are dirt trail off shoots all around that go to a grassy field and park. And there is a small river that leads

Park-on-40th-Ogden

We had some time to kill in Ogden last week so we stopped at this new play ground at a park that I used to frequent as a kid. My grandparents lived off 40th and Jefferson, so I would often venture down to the park with my cousins in the summer. So many fond memories. It was so fun to bring my kids and let them see the old park, and we all played on the new playground and had lunch. Just wanted to share. It's a good one and not very busy.

Ogden River Parkway - Centennial Trail - BEGINING TO END steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:21
Since Covid-19 and quarantine hit us this spring, we have had the best time exploring all the places that we never really could before because we got longboards and bikes! We have always had bikes, but not enough for the whole family to ride at once. Also, they take up so much space that we couldn't fit them in our van and fit all of our kids too. The first week of quarantine my kids ordered longboards on line. They have been the biggest game changer for us. We have been able to explore places that we have never been

Trackline Bike Park - Ogden's NEWEST bike park

My mom sent me a text about this new park on Ogden. There were a couple photos but it didn't even have an address listed. We decided to pack up the bikes today (which is no small miracle in and of itself 5 kids, plus my massive bike doesn't work if we are taking kids to ride the bikes that we pack. So we made the executive decision to leave the littlest Read at home with Papa so we would all fit. We really need to get a bike rack, and a hitch ASAP. It should be noted that while

Art Nord Hiking Trail at Snowbasin Resort | Salt Project Hike Meet-Up

A few weeks ago we had a Hike Meet-Up with Tim from This is Ogden! We hiked the Art Nord Trail, a family-friendly hike just off of the old Snowbasin Road. Be sure to check out the trail maps and tips below. Thanks to all of you that came! We had quite a group. We had families, people who just happened to see our FB Hike Event and were visiting the state, people of all ages and skill levels. It was really fun to get together with a group that we might not have otherwise met. The Art Nord Trailhead

Birdsong Trail

The other morning my friend asked if I wanted to hike/bike the Birdsong Trail in Ogden. I hadn't been on the trail for a number of years and was really thrown off when my friend said it's "mostly shaded." The Birdsong Trail I went on years ago didn't have much shade, so I was really curious. Little did I know there was another section right off Taylor street and it really was "mostly shaded!" It did start out in full sun for a hot minute at the top of the trailhead. Birdsong Trail is 1 mile one way. Birdsong is

Epic Birthday Party Date Night - Fly High

Confession. My birthday is in November. Not January. But because my birthday is in November, it gets skipped/combined/put off every stinking year. This year I went out to dinner with my siblings for Christmas (a couple weeks after my birthday) and at the end of the meal, as an after thought, someone said, hey, this counts as Stephs birthday dinner. They sang, they brought out my free dessert, it was nice, but it once again, it was kind of an after thought. This has been happening since the beginning of time. Every year I say, next year I'm going to
