Snowy Stockton In Winter

Hi there! Join Angie & Sarah on Facebook, Pinterest, and/or Subscribe to keep up with what's new at Utah Gazer.

I hope you are viewing this post while wearing fuzzy socks, sitting next to a fire, and sipping cocoa...Boy was it a struggle to go on an outing today! Not only is the Northern Utah inversion making visibility a nightmare, but since the roads are super snowy, it meant that I couldn't pull over to take pictures (for fear of getting stuck), so finding places that I could even see anything AND felt safe to park in the middle of the road was challenging to say the least. But we did go out and saw some  beautiful views and it was still nice...even with my five-year-old yelling at me that it was "the worst outing ever"... ha ha!

While trying to think of someplace I could share with all of you, I realized that we haven't posted much in Washington. I don't know why, it's such a cute little town with so much history. There is actually so much more than I had originally thought! For today, we'll narrow it down to the Relief Society Hall though. I promise to share a bit more later.

When I was a kid, I thought that going to see these dinosaur tracks was pretty amazing! It made my imagination go wild and was one of my most memorable experiences from my child-hood. As fate would have it, the very same day that my sister and I took my girls to go see them, the movie The Good Dinosaur was playing at the local Theater. It rounded out our serendipitous dinosaur-themed day quite nicely.

I had hoped to make it to Toquerville before all of the leaves fell from the trees to take a few photos. The main street through town is lined with trees making it so pretty in the Fall. When that didn't happen, I chose to take a few while out in the hills of Toquerville. I hope you enjoy and I promise to update with a few pictures next Fall.

I love their City Hall. It sits right on Main Street, you can't miss it.

It felt like a dream driving out to Warner Valley last week. I hadn't been in at least 12 or so years so I had forgotten just how gorgeous it is. If you haven't been, it's on the border of Utah and Arizona just south of Hurricane.

Sky Ranch is such a cool place! It's a community of Adobe homes that all have their own "in-house" airplane hanger that hooks up to a shared runway. Can you imagine being able to fly anywhere, at will, the same way you can open your garage and drive wherever you want with your car?

Snowy Stansbury Mountains

Hi there! Join Angie & Sarah on Facebook and Pinterest to keep up with what's new at Utah Gazer.
To Submit your photos: Go here! 

I guess it's a good thing that I took pictures of more than one location last week when I went to Stansbury Island... because today we got a blizzard so there was no way that I was going to risk it and go out and try to drive past the storm just to have something to share today.  I originally wanted to go up one of the canyons in the Stansbury Mountains, but the further I got up the dirt (mud/ice) road, the more worried I was about getting stuck so some pictures of the mountains themselves will have to do. Looks like my habit of driving up random canyons just to take a look is going to have to take a break until late spring/early summer for safety sake. Darn it!

Silver Reef is a ghost town located just 15 miles Northeast of St George. I had actually never been before and was pretty excited to go check it out. There was so much more to see and discover than I thought! We are already planning another trip out as a family.

To me, Erda is quaint and just where I would want to build a house if staying in Tooele County were in the cards for us... unfortunately, due to my husband being laid-off in September, my family is re-locating.  My dreams of building a house on a five acre lot in Erda, in a couple of years, have officially gone down the drain. Oh well, sometimes we plan and then the plan changes and we have to adapt to what life throws at us.

I had every intention of taking pictures of Rush Lake when I left for this outing...(I had driven by the sign for the turn off several times) and only by trying to find the lake did I discover that it is more of a shallow pond or a puddle. I decided that taking pictures of the surrounding area would be a little more exciting for you all. Hopefully it does not disappoint.

It is something that I had wanted to see for awhile and was completely humbled by it. If you get a chance, I recommend visiting both.

Spanish Fork is such a beautiful place! The mountains surrounding it are HUGE...but then again, I'm kind of used to looking at the  Oquirrh Mountain range, which is kind of puny in comparison.

The city of Herriman has exploded in size since I moved to Northern Utah ten years ago. Every time I go there I am amazed at the growth. That being said, there is a reason! It is such a gorgeous place and as the town climbs the side of the mountain it has breathtaking views of the entire Salt Lake Valley...which is probably why most of the homes up there are more than a little pricey.

Definitely worth the drive, I promise.

To Submit your photos: Go here! 

With how hazy the air has been lately. It's been tough to think of places to go to take clear pictures to share with you all. I decided that taking some evening shots of an LDS temple that is lit up for the night would be a good way to work around the poor air quality...you know, since you can't take a picture of a mountain scene when you can't even see the mountain.


We'd love to see some gorgeous shots of ANY place of worship in Utah, so if you have some or know someone that likes to take pictures like that, please send them the link for our photo submission page, found here.

Page Ranch or Little Pinto as some call it, was on offshoot of Iron Town in Iron County. It was a very small settlement with only about a dozen people or so. It was once a very important stopping point along a major freighting and travel route in Southern Utah. It is now a Ghost Town but was marked by the Historical Society in 1985.

One of my favorite things about Utah is the large number of OHV trails that are available. It has always been a favorite pastime of mine to pack a picnic and take a ride out into the country with my family. It's just something we've done since I was a kid. Santa Clara has some gorgeous views if you explore a little out on the back roads and trails. We decided to do just that and snapped a few pictures while we were at it.

Hi there! Join Angie & Sarah on Facebook and Pinterest to keep up with what's new at Utah Gazer.

If you are looking for an easy Family Friendly hike to go on, Temple Quarry Trail is it. I had never heard of it until we were trying to think of something to do with the kids and my Husband suggested it. It is an easy hike and all relatively flat. There are stairs at the beginning but also a few benches along the trail if needed.  No steep inclines to hike up and only 2.5 miles round trip.
