Utah Children's Theatre Summer Camps | Salt Lake City

Our 7-year-old was fortunate enough to get invited to attend one of the Utah Children's Theatre's summer camps. She attended last year as well and was so excited to go again this year! They offer a wide variety of camps all summer long with a half day or full day option. Each session has a different theme and some cover different types of performing, from stage acting to musical performance to improv, so be sure to check out their schedule online. My daughter attended the Fairy Tales and Fables camp in the morning and On Broadway Voice camp in the

Ricks Springs Cave | Cache National Forest

Ricks Springs is a karst spring in Logan Canyon. It's about 20 minutes from Bear Lake. I have seen the cave off the side of the road many times as we have driven to Bear Lake and have always wanted to stop. Today was my lucky day! We pulled over on the shoulder of the road and took 15 minutes for a little pit stop to explore the springs and cave. There are plaques of information about the springs as well as a nicely paved path and bridge. There are also trails along the back side of the springs that

Hike Spring Creek Canyon | Kanarraville | Southern Utah

It was Memorial Weekend and I knew all the world would be down in Southern Utah hiking all my favorite hikes. I actually REALLY wanted to hike Hidden Canyon in Zion National Park (I've never done it.) Apparently, there were going to be record amounts of visitors. So, we checked around for new hikes and I found this one in Kanarraville. Now this hike shouldn't be confused with Kanarraville Falls hike. Spring Creek is actually a slot canyon hike south of town and has similar aspects, all except the ever awesome rock waterslide. Since we've hiked Kanarraville Falls many times

Kanarraville Falls | Adventurin' | Hikes

This is one hike everyone should/could do in their life at least once. We've hiked with kids from ages 1-12 on this hike, so we know if can be done for all ages! The trail starts out long, steep and hot but once you get pass the dirt road and up to the water tower there is more shade cover, you start hiking alongside the creek, and the scenery becomes much more exciting. Be sure to wear shoes that you can get wet. You can't really avoid it. My favorite part of the hike is when you enter the canyon

Newspaper Rock | Adventurin' | Monticello

Located just West of Church Rock (above) you'll find yourself on a nice 20 minute drive to Newspaper Rock. You'll also pass a bunch of abandoned cabins that once belonged to a religious cult that worshiped Church Rock. (Things only the locals tell you.) Think of Newspaper Rock like a Facebook and Twitter Page only a 2000 year old version. Could you imagine sitting there and chiseling out your story, who knew how long that would take you? This petroglyph site is 200 square foot area one the largest and best preserved. We came up with all sorts of theories

Canyon Country Discovery Center | Four Corners School | Monticello

The main reason The Salt Project even went to Monticello, was because of the Canyon Country Discovery Center. We'd been e-mailing back and forth and they opened out eyes to how much we were missing! We'd been to Moab plenty of times, but never further south on the eastern side of Utah. So you can thank them for all the awesome things we're going to post in the next few weeks. They have a brand new building that's constantly adding new features, exhibits, tours, nature walks and things to do like crazy! Here's Lyndie giving us a tour, it's quite

Crystal Geyser | Green River

Last week, while driving to Monticello, I found myself kind of bored driving. This tends to happen after about 2 hours. I'm probably just as bad as any child, but I do try to contain my boredom for the sake of my husband. Luckily, we've used this phone app called Roadside America for years. We've seen many odd side road attractions because of this app. We've seen a giant pyramid and a hundred foot Virgin Mary in the middle of Wyoming. We've used it in Michigan, Idaho and Portland. Why? Because who doesn't love seeing weird sculptures made out of

Camping in Moab | Arches National Park | Canyonlands National Park | Dead Horse Point State Park

Need an amazing Spring Break destination within a few hours driving distance from home? Look no further than Moab! At just under 4 hours away from Salt Lake City, this place makes an incredible base for tons of family-friendly explorations of southern Utah. Now is a great time of year to hit up southern Utah, before the heat waves of the summer hit and make visiting the area a bit more unbearable. Back in September, my husband and I took our three little girls and joined up with some friends of ours (husband + wife + 6 little kids) to

City Creek Canyon Trail | Adventurin'

Are you guys loving this spring weather as much as we are? We know it’s still just the beginning of March but this weather is making us feel like summer is just a week or two away. Unfortunately, although it may feel like spring has arrived here in the valley, all our favorite hiking trails are still sprinkled with snow, or wet mud at least. Hiking just isn’t possible this time of year. But this weather! It’s making us long for the days when we can head to the mountains and spend the day exploring all the beauty Utah has
