One of the highlights of Bear Lake is our annual trip across the lake and through the Bloomington Canyon to Bloomington lake. You’re all surrounded by sage brush and dessert and the barren beauty of the Bear Lake valley and then suddenly you pop into a place that so lush and different, it looks like the Alps. You take a little hike through knolls and fields of wild flowers till you hit the aqua glacier waters of Bloomington lake. It’s breath taking (beautiful, and super duper cold).
Hazel and Charlie were quite the little hikers. I think they were pretty excited to leave Bear Lake (we hadn’t been in the car in a week!).
Finally this year I got to take my first swing on the gigantic rope swing (I’ve been either too pregnant or too wussy the other years to do it). This year, encouraged by Hazel and Charlie, I got up the guts to go and it was awesome.
We felt alive. (Above is Hazel’s “I FEEL ALIVE” photo pose….you’ll notice as you look through the blog that she does it a lot. Oh, I love that girl!)
