Silver Lake

June 28th 2014

We left on a drive, without a destination, and ended up at Silver Lake, where we were able to cross off the second hike 
from our Summer Bucket List.

The lake (which is really more of a big pond) is probably one of the most popular lakes in the state of Utah.
It's a relatively fast drive to get to the lake and the trail that goes around it is easy enough for all ages. 

It was nice getting out of the valley heat and feeling the coolness of the mountain air. 

Silver Lake is a popular place for moose to graze, and we were lucky enough to spot a pair of them today.  
Obviously, we didn't want to get to close to the moose, so they're a little hard to see in the photos.

In these pictures, they look like horses to me, but they are moose. Promise. 

We're lucky to live in such a beautiful place. 

Like I mentioned this "hike" isn't really much of a hike at all, but we aren't setting out to conquer huge mountains or push ourselves to the limit. 
We just wanted something where we could 
enjoy being in nature and being with each other.
And this was the perfect place to do that. 

Do you have a favorite place to go when you just need to get away for a couple hours? I'd love to hear about it.
