Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum | 12 Utah Staycations

One can't go to Vernal without visiting the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum! Since the weather had been rainy, we decided that the museum was just the right solution! Besides that, who doesn't LOVE dinosaurs! If you want, they have a fun booklet you can purchase at the front desk. It helps the kids pay more attention and even learn some fun facts about dinosaurs! The kids loved running around and we loved not getting rained on. We went to the outside portion of the museum. The kids loved running around and we loved not getting

Red Canyon | 12 Utah Staycations

I’ve been by Red Canyon quite a few times before but have never stopped. This time, I made sure it was on the itinerary. After swimming at the hotel and eating some dinner at the Cowboy Buffet and Steak House we decided to do a quick trip to Red Canyon and go exploring. Red Canyon Visitor Center has very limited hours, so we weren’t able to go inside, but we did explore. It was SO much fun. We followed some trails and then climbed some big boulders. While Bryce Canyon National Park is magical in its own right, Red Canyon
Camping at Goblin Valley State Park harm Sat, 03/02/2019 - 09:53
.Our long time SP contributor Camille, is here to share her camping experience in Gobline Valley State Park! If you've never visited Goblin Valley State Park before, you simply must put this place on your bucket list of "don't miss" sites in Utah. Sure, it's a bit remote, but the landscape is jaw-dropping and other-worldly in a way that will make you think you're on Mars. I have great memories of visiting Goblin Valley when I was a kid, and I remember it being the coolest place because of the incredible rock formations. I wanted to share this memory with

Biking at Snow Canyon with our Yuba Bike!

We headed to Southern Utah a few weeks ago so we could get in some warm weather biking! I love writing about our favorite biking partner, Yuba Cargo Bikes! I've been DYING to take my new Yuba Bike out of the garage. I've ridden my Yuba (his name is still pending, we are taking suggestions) only a handful of times and usually the kids and I are bundled up since it's been so cold. Originally, we were going to head to Zion National Park, but after hearing on the news that tourists would be flooding the area with at least

More Fun in Bear Lake | Paris | Dingle | Zipz harm Wed, 07/12/2017 - 10:09
I know you've all heard/read about/done fun things at Bear Lake (see past Salt Project posts here, here and here) but I'm here to assure you that there are still MORE fun things to do during your visit to Bear Lake that you probably have never done before! All of the activities are located in the Bear Lake Valley, which means they cover Utah and Idaho territory. Here's the list: Visit the Paris Tabernacle If you take a short drive north of Bear Lake on the US-89, you'll end up in Paris. Idaho, that is. I wish you could take

Utah Territorial Statehouse : Utah's First Capital

Did you know that Utah's first State Capital was in Fillmore Utah? We were passing through Fillmore and saw a sign for the Statehouse so we decided to stop and check it out. I'm so glad we did! The museum is only $1 for kids $2 for adults. We were on a time crunch so we rushed through it in about 10 minutes, but the attendant said that most people take about an hour to get through the self guided tour. The hall of photographs of local founders was my favorite. So much history in one place. Then each room
