Kim's Taste of Cache Valley

A few weeks ago I was in Logan with my friend Melinda and we completed what my cousin Kim calls the "Taste of Cache Valley!" The Taste of Cache Valley consists of visiting local Utah outlets that produce goods and foods that are made in Cache Valley, but for a BARGAIN! The Salt Project loves good bargains! Most of these outlet stores sell what are called "seconds." Seconds are just that. They are imperfect products that are still good, but maybe missing a top of the ice cream sandwich or have some slight blemish. I'm not above scavenging for a

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

Hobbit Caves | 12 Utah Staycations

This is THE COOLEST hike if you can call it a hike. Basically, you park right next to a river, cross the river and you are at your destination, the Hobbit Caves! Both Harmony and Stephanie are barely 5' tall, so we felt right at home here in HOBBITON. Of course, after you explore the caves, you can follow the trail along the river for quite a ways. We didn't track how far it goes back but we did explore all over the area. Getting down to the river is a little steep but totally doable. We had 3 adults

Corn Maze on the Farm at the American West Heritage Center | Wellsville

The American West Heritage Center is located in beautiful Cache County. It is a wonderful place where you can learn about and experience the diverse cultures that shaped the valley between 1820 and 1920. Fall is our favorite time of year to visit AWHC because the kids can enjoy all their usual favorite activities, such as the miniature train and pony rides, as well as the corn maze and pumpkin patch that are part of the Corn Maze on the Farm event. We met up with my brother and his family and our group of kids ranged from 10 months

Limber Pine Nature Trail | Hikes

Limber Pine Trail is short nature 1.3 mile loop and is always a good idea if you are near logan canyon or on your way to Bear Lake. This trail is great for all ages and levels of hikers! It is wide and level. A beautiful walk through the wooded forests and mountain meadows of the Cache National Forest. Just a few steps up from the parking lot the trail will split. Go to your right here so you can read the signs in order. Our kids loved reading the interpretive signs along the way. Especially the sign about why

Hobbit Caves & Right Hand Fork Waterfall | Logan Canyon | Adventurin'

We've been LOTR people for a long time. Recently, my sister has been teaching my kids about Gandalf, his fireworks, Smaug the Dragon, Hobbits and Hobbit Holes. In that exact order. We were heading up to Bear Lake for a family reunion and my sister was telling us about the Hobbit Caves in Logan. As we were packing up to go, I told the kids about the Hobbit Caves. They got SUPER Excited! We loaded everyone into the car and dropped our dog off at Furry Friends in Wellsville. It's a dog kennel that's only 10$ a day! The Hobbit

Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park | Stokes Nature Center Firefly Walk

I knew it was going to be a magical evening when it started with a double rainbow. Stokes Nature Center’s Firefly Walk did not disappoint. It is a special event to spend with your family! (Past Salt Project Firefly article here.) For the Firefly Walk we met at the Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park in Nibley. (Note: This is not at the actual Stokes Nature Center.) They started with a super fun craft and a sweet story time for the little kiddos as you wait for it to become dark enough. They also had a great little talk about fireflies prior

Saranoni | Giveaway

In February, my husband would comment how cold it was, but he wasn't wearing a jacket and had on short sleeves. FEBRUARY. Seriously, it blows my mind. I had to keep reminding him that it was February. Now that we've moved into March it's not like I was surprised to see the snow again. I kind of liked it. Utah without snow during the winter is kind of dead and ugly looking. It's nice to be inside, watching it snow and snuggling with a warm blanket. We've been doing a lot of snuggling lately, the kids and I. I'm 39

3 Things to do in Hyrum with Snow in Mind | Field Trippin

With all the fresh snow Cache Valley has just gotten, I'm sure this is a magical winterland. 1. Hardware Ranch One of our first Salt Project Adventures! Yes, you can do all of these activates in a day. Just plan accordingly. It's an all day thing if you don't live nearby. 2. Hyrum City Park aka Winter Wonderland We passed this park on our way to Hardware Ranch. We probably spent 30 minutes there, but we could have stayed forever! 3. Salt Hollow Park | Hyrum, UT We also passed this park on our way as well. Who knew Hyrum

Clean the Sink at Angie's | Grubbin'

Their faces says it all. Do I really need to write this post? We heard about The Kitchen Sink right here on this little blog. Harmony mentioned it in a post a couple weeks ago and I was like "I'm SO adding that to my summer bucket list"! Well, we happened to be in town to hunt down the rumored fireflies and we were starving from paddle boarding and running through the Poppies in Mantua so we ran over to Angie's in Logan to take the challenge. If you clean the kitchen sink you win a bumper sticker! You can't
