Follow The Flag in North Ogden harm Wed, 11/06/2019 - 15:11
* Edited Nov. 2020 Today we hiked the 5 miles to Cold Water Canyon to view the world's biggest American flag. This American flag was hung to honor the late Mayor of North Ogden, Major Brent Taylor, who died serving his country and to honor all those who have served/serving. If you are lucky, you might meet the guys behind Follow the Flag North Ogden. They were at the lookout and it was cool to hear the reason behind their cause. They hope the flag with Honor, Heal and inspire all. Veteran's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect

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

Kokanee Salmon Run at Causey Reservoir 2019

The Salmon Run this year in Utah has been kind of weird. 2019 has been full of rain, cold weather and then heat. I'm sure the salmon don't even know what to do anymore. We sure don't! I've actually had tried getting up to Causey Reservoir for the kokanee salmon run two different times and have been thawrted by cold, rainy weather. We FINALLY succeeded on Saturday! Be sure to read about my checklist for a successful Salmon Run at Causey below. Honestly, this trip almost didn't happen for a number of reasons. The clouds were making things look iffy

Utah's Famous Fruit Highway | 12 Utah Staycations

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is driving Utah's Famous Fruit Highway! Along old highway 89, from July until October, you can find all the fruit stands from Perry to Brigham City. We saw Cherry Concentrate, Watermelons, squash, onions and all sorts of stands. We chose to stop at Tagge's Famous Fruit Farm Stand. Tagge's Famous Fruit & Veggie Farms We made a spot to try ALL the peaches at Tagge's Famous Fruit Farm in Perry Utah. Peaches are in season and the kids LOVED trying all the varieties of peaches! We determined that the Red

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

Paper Airplane Trail at Powder Mountain

We've been seeing photos here and there of a giant paper airplane on Powder Mountain and we finally found it. Not that it's hard, but I was a little intimidated because all the photos I've seen have people on mountain bikes. I did a little research and found out it was a beginner trail (for adults) and figured the kids could probably do the .9 (ish) ride down the mountain. It was pretty exciting coming around the bend and spying the airplane way out there. It looked magical! We literally put "Paper Airplane Trail" in our phones and it took

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
Ogden Christmas Tree on The Bonneville Shoreline harm Sat, 12/15/2018 - 22:50
We finally did it! After one failed attempt, we headed back up the mountain to find the Ogden Christmas Tree on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail! It's just as lovely as all the photos we've seen. Lucky for us, this is a trail we know and love VERY much. We actually call it the Bench Hike Trail. Because if you go further south on the trail you'll find yourself at the best bench to view Ogden City. Today, it was 47 degrees. It was the perfect day to attempt hiking to the Ogden Christmas Tree. We tried earlier this week, but

Ogden 9th Street Bike Park

As my kids have gotten older, I've come to realize that little boys are WAYYYY different than girls. Ha! I mean, my little girls are just as adventurous, but my little boy is constantly fidgeting, wrestling and running around. While his sister is happy to color for an hour, he's content for about 5 seconds. Lucky for us, Orion has a BFF that lives down the street who is his exact age and height. I've been thinking about bike parks for a while, ever since Jack's mom took these two mountain biking while we hiked. I finally just DID it
