Gunlock Falls | Gunlock State Park

Gunlock State Park or Gunlock Falls as it known this year is PHENOMENAL! We had just finished our Girl's Trip at Red Mountain Resort and knew we had to take the long way home so we could see Gunlock Falls. When we came around the bend and saw how HUGE the falls were we all "OOOOOOOOh and AWWWWW!" Gunlock State Park is normal a small reservoir with NO falls, except once in every few years. I think I heard that the last time the falls were running was 12 years ago. So you've GOT to put the falls on your

Girl's Weekend Getaway with Red Mountain Resort!

Red Mountain Resort is tucked away in Southern Utah, near St. George in Ivins Utah. It's literally the last thing between you and Snow Canyon State Park. They own acres of desert that are right next to Snow Canyon State Park, so their views will LITERALLY never change. Red Mountain Resort is beautiful in every way. It wasn't what I was expecting and it was SO much more! We haven't done a Girl's Trip on The Salt Project ever. Never once. I'm still kind of blown away by this fact! So when Red Mountain Resort reached out about a partnership

Tuacahn Amphitheatre Giveaway and Coupon! | Disney's When You Wish A Celebration of the Disney Songbook

Tuacahn Amphitheatre has long been on The Salt Project Bucket List! It seems like we are always visiting during the off-season but we finally made it during our Girl's Trip to Red Mountain Resort! We actually visited Tuacahn TWICE in one day! When we found out there was a Saturday Market on Saturday at Tuacahn Amphitheatre we decided to bike the 1.5 miles out there from Red Mountain Resort! Stephanie had serious reservations about biking in the middle of the day in St. George. (With good reason.) Luckily, it ended up being the perfect temperature that day and we made

Hiking Shakespeare Arch & Sentinel Traill | Kodachrome Basin State Park | 12 Utah Staycations

Man, I’d seen a few photos of Kodachrome Basin State Park and KNEW we needed to visit! Kodachrome State Park was named after Kodak Film in the 1940s which had just come out with color film. Kodachrome is known for their chimney like spires that jut out all over the ground. We hadn’t packed lunch, so we knew we probably had limited time before everyone got hangry. I asked the ranger which hike he would do if he could only do one and do it with a bunch of kids. He suggested Shakespeare Arch and Sentinal Hike. It was only

Timber Creek Overlook Trail | 12 Utah Staycations

The last time we hiked Timber Creek Overlook Trail, I think Aiko must have been two and Orion was just a baby. I don't think The Salt Project was even around then. Timber Creek Overlook Trail might be the most popular trail on this side of Zion, due to the fact it's only 1-mile roundtrip. We saw lots of kids on the trail and lots of other people too. It was like have flashbacks with tiny Vesper and Farah. The Kolob Entrance to Zion has only just opened up after having some road work done. I kind of miss the

Three Peaks Recreation Area | 12 Utah Staycations

Three Peaks Recreation Area is an AMAZING County park 10 miles out west of Cedar City. As a college student, we went out to have paintball wars, go bouldering and bike out there. Not a whole lot has changed in scenery, but they have updated the area quite a bit. Like, there's a whole pavilion you can rent out with swings nearby. But the BEST parts? All the boulders. It’s an amazing place covered in granite boulders. I mean COVERED. The rocks for some reason are very rounded and it’s perfect for scrambling around for everyone. You can mountain bike

Pork Belly's Eatery & Catering Co | 12 Utah Staycations

We hadn’t heard of Pork Belly’s before and we have to say, it was DANG good. Not only dang good, but the service was SUPER fast. With 5 adults and 9 kids, they were able to bring out a large amount of food in excellent timing. Also, the food was REALLy good. We had everything for BLT sandwiches, to salads to ribs. All of it was tasty and so filling. Anyone else's kids eat vasts amounts of sugar? The one time we let them be alone on a "Big Kid" table and this is the aftermath. (FACEPALM + PARENT FAIL.)
