What do you do in the summer when it's HOT? Swimming is always my favorite option, but a close #2 is heading up into the mountains, which is what we did on Tuesday. (It was about ten degrees cooler up there.) I took the kids to Cascade Springs, a place I remembered visiting with Brandon 16 summers ago as newlyweds. I have a long list of easy, family friendly hikes along the Wasatch Front I'm dying to try, but I started with one I already knew. It's a pretty good drive up the canyon, but beautiful from the very start.

Thank you, Vanna:
On the drive home we were SHOCKED to see a MOOSE run across the road right in front of us! You should have seen me scrambling for the camera:
