John and I went to Utah for a week about 3 weeks ago. His daughter and her family bought a second home in Park City so we try to go every summer. I don't ski so that is the best time for me and the city is beautiful in the summer. John's daughter, Kerri and her family love the outdoors and are into all these health stuff so we get a lot of exercise when we go there. We usually begin by going to the gym and joining some kind of an exercise or stretching program. We also hike a lot.
One day, they took us camping at the Jordanelle Park. This sign scared me so I was always on a look out, but we did not see any rattlesnakes. Thank heavens!
We set up the tents. They put ours on the platform because they know I get scared easily. Actually, I don't think I am the only one who is scared. John and I both screamed so loud in the middle of the night because we could hear raccoons scratching and fighting right behind our tent. lol.
Kerri and family's tent is the one on the left. It is actually a lot bigger, just does not seem like it in the picture.
We grilled chicken kabobs, veggies and hotdogs for dinner.
S'mores for dessert.
Then we walked and explored.
The grandkids had a great time.
This sweet robin posed for me.
Little Holden was so proud to pick up sticks to feed the fire.
They had a nice boardwalk and the view was just spectacular.
The wild flowers were gorgeous!
The next morning, John and I got up before the others rose and we hiked. We saw this deer who walked towards us, close enough for us to touch him.
Aren't those little antlers so cute? He is just a yearling.
Beautiful wild daisies!
See why they call them cottonwoods?
The highlight of this camping trip was spotting a family of bald eagles on a pole, as we were leaving the park. Of course, we had to turn around so we could take pictures.
I think there were 2 babies there too, just could not capture them but could see them stick their heads up every now and then.
Isn't he a beauty?
Thank you so much for your visits. Thanks to all the hostesses too. I really appreciate all your hard work.
