Winter at Utah Lake State Park

I recently discovered that Utah Lake State Park was known to be a winter home for a few bald eagles.  After experiencing the thrill of seeing one out in the wild on a recent trip to Florida, I was eager to see if there really were some only minutes away from my home.

Chimney Rock & Hickman Bridge

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day Weekend in January, we went back down to Torrey to visit the in-laws.  While there, Jessica and I were able to hike the Chimney Rock Loop followed by a short hike to the Hickman Bridge Loop in Capitol Reef National Park.

Ruby Falls Cave

Florida's Myakka River State Park

While on our visit to South Florida, I had hoped to sneak in a drive out into the Everglades to look for some alligators as we had gotten to see on a day trip to Miami from Ft.

A Drive from Florida to Utah

This post is slightly different from the norm usually found on this blog. While not wholly about an outdoor adventure along a trail or out in the backcountry, this trip did feature visits to some natural settings and landscapes with an abundance of wildlife and a gorgeous cave. However, it also included a lot of history and other sight-seeing stops throughout western and central Florida and across much of the country. I wanted to document it all just the same...
