The Grotto in Hornet Canyon - Farmington

I love trying out a new trail, but I also get anxiety about it and find myself very resistant to the idea often times. What if I get lost? What if it's too hard? Well, I have gotten lost (and I did get lost on this hike lol), and I have always been able to do finish, no matter how hard it's been. And when I get lost (which is often), it always makes for a great story after. Well this hike has been on my list for awhile, so when a friend reached out and wanted to try a

Snow Shoeing STEWART FALLS - Winter Edition

*Please note, this hike falls in an avalanche zone. Always check Utah Avalanche Center before any winter hiking. Driving up Provo Canyon to Sundance is so beautiful. You can see the amazing Bridal Veil Falls to the south, and there is an awesome paved trail to explore there. Snowshoeing has been on my winter bucket list for years now. I always add it half heartedly, knowing that if the opportunity presents itself I'll jump at it. But I'm not going to go seeking it out. Well our friends invited us up to their cabin in Sundance last weekend to go

The "Y" - BEST HIKING GUIDE

Bucketlist item 2020! I'm a huge bucketlist advocate, I feel like if it doesn't go on my list then it doesn't happen. I also feel like if I something to my list, no matter how random it is, the opportunity often presents itself. Hiking the Y has been on my mental list since I was a kid. But this year it actually made it onto paper. When we visited Utah County for a staycation this summer, it was on my list, but we just couldn't squeeze it in with all the fun stuff there is to do in Provo. A

Fifths Hot Springs - HIKING GUIDE

*NOTE: As of September 2020, this trail is closed indefinitely for public health and safety. Please check here for updates and more information: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/uwcnf/recarea/?recid=9861 This hike is currently closed due to COVID-19 or a death from what I can see. This trail has been closed most of 2020, from what I can see, so I have been putting off writing/sharing this post basically an entire year. But, I decided to go ahead and post about it before I completely forget all the details of the hike. And y'all can pin it to your hiking Pinterest board, and check it out

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

Antelope Island Winter Part Dos | Adventurin'

After hearing that Camille went out to Antelope Island in the Winter, I knew what my family would be doing for Martin Luther King Day. Luckily, we did completely different things. Just goes to show there is much to do on Antelope Island. We headed on out to Antelope Island on a drizzly, cold January day. First stop, the Visitor Center. Don't worry, Aiko made it there safely with her hiking sticks. Apparently, this Visitor Center has been there for quite a few years. I've never been and for some reason thought that it was new (in the last few

Antelope Island Buffalo Round-up

We've heard about the Antelope Buffalo Round-Up for years, I guess we'll just keep on hearing about it, too. Apparently there is a Round-up — before the official Round-up. The first Round-up was the real Round-up we wanted to see. Get it? Well we didn't' either. Let me start from the beginning. It was a fine, glorious November morning as we headed out to the lonely island in the Great Salt Lake. Not really sure where we should go for said Round-up, we headed towards the Fielding Garr Ranch. (It's 19 miles from the Visitor Center.) It was safe to

Antelope Island Adventuring

While out at Antelope Island, Stephanie took her crew on a short hike. It's the Egg Island Overlook at it's about .28 miles. One couldn't have asked for a more beautiful November sky.
